All three elected trustees must be members of or retired from CERS, two must have had a majority of their service credit earned in CERS in a Nonhazardous position and one must have a majority of his or her service credit earned in a Hazardous CERS position.

Each of the three entities must submit three applicants with retirement experience and three applicants with investment experience. The governor appoints one person with retirement experience and one person with investment experience from KLC, KACo, and KSBA.
