The nine-member Board is chaired by the Director of Finance and includes the City Solicitor, the Managing Director, the City Personnel Director, the City Controller, and four employees elected by the members of the four municipal unions. The pension benefits available to City employees are determined by City ordinances and by the City's collective bargaining agreements.
