LOS ANGELES FIREMEN’S RELIEF ASSOCATION
Kenny Breskin, Chairman, Election Committee, LAFRA
Election time again is bearing down upon us. Elections are a very important aspect for the life and health of your Relief Association. It is now time to nominate members of the Association for the offices of the Group 3 Trustee positions.
As stated in the Bylaws, Chapter I, Section 7136, “The Trustees shall attend all meetings of the Board, unless excused, visit the sick and injured members in their respective districts, report upon all matters coming within their scope of assignments and responsibilities, and perform such other duties as may be assigned to them by the Board.”
The Trustees are the elected representatives of the membership of the Association, who are responsible to their constituency and to the Association as a whole. A conscientious effort must be made by each Trustee to be knowledgeable of the Association’s Bylaws and their responsibilities to the members of the Association. The Association is governed and its business conducted by the Board of Trustees. Dissemination of information relative to the Association and to its membership is conducted primarily by the Trustees. Conversely, opinions, requests and suggestions are channeled to the Board through the Trustees. A close liaison with the membership is paramount to the performance of a Trustee’s duties.
Nominations are open during the month of September and will close at the end of the business day on October 12, 2023.
