A Board of Trustees administers the Teachers Retirement System of Georgia (TRS). State statutes provide that the administration of the System be vested in a ten-member Board of Trustees comprised as follows:
Two Ex-officio members:
Board of Regents appointee:
The Board appoints TRS's Executive Director who is responsible for the proper operation and staffing of TRS, engaging such actuarial and other services as necessary to transact business, and paying expenses necessary for operations.
Although TRS is a component unit of the State of Georgia's financial reporting entity, it is accountable for its own fiscal matters and presentation of separate financial statements. TRS has the power and privileges of a corporation and the right to bring and defend actions.
