Board of Trustees

The CEBT Board of Trustees is comprised of seven members chosen from CEBT employer groups throughout the state. The Board strives to have representation for different types of public employers (i.e. education, municipalities, counties, and special districts) as well as from different sized employers. When a Board position is vacated, information is shared with CEBT employer groups regarding how to express interest and apply to become a CEBT Trustee. Feel free to contact the Trust’s administrator, Willis Towers Watson, at 303-773-1373 if you have specific questions.

The Board of Trustees has contracted with Willis Towers Watson (WTW) to be the Trust Administrator. WTW performs the day to day customer service, eligibility, benefit consulting, marketing and other administrative functions under the direction of the Board of Trustees.
