IFT leader is honored for her service on TRS board

The Illinois Retired Teachers Association (IRTA) recently honored IFT Secretary-Treasurer Marcia Campbell for her service on the Teachers Retirement System (TRS) Board of Trustees. Campbell served as an appointed trustee on the board from 2007-2015. During her tenure, she was chair of the Legislative Committee and a member of the Investment, Audit, and Claims Hearing committees.

“It was both an honor and a privilege to serve as a trustee for the Teachers Retirement System, working with my fellow trustees and the excellent TRS staff to responsibly manage the life savings of Illinois teachers,” she said.

Upon taking office, Governor Rauner replaced Campbell and another trustee with his own appointees.

A proud PSRP and longtime IFT and local leader, Campbell was elected IFT Secretary-Treasurer in 2010. She was the first IFT representative appointed to the TRS Board of Trustees.
