Member Categories

The State Association of County Retirement Systems (SACRS) classifies its membership into three main categories:


  • System members consisting of elected and appointed trustees and staff from the 20 retirement systems that abide by the County Employees Retirement Law of 1937 (CERL).
  • Organizational Affiliate members that are retirement-related or investment-related organizations. Membership acceptance requires sponsorship from two System member trustees or administrators.
  • Organizational Non-Profit Affiliate members that share common ground with our Association's mission. A current System member must nominate a non-profit candidate for membership.


SACRS bylaws cap the maximum number of Affiliate members at 215 organizations, each with up to two representatives. SACRS maintains an Affiliate member waiting list when membership reaches its capacity.
