The New Jersey Carpenters Annuity Fund is administered by a joint Board of Trustees consisting of an equal number of union-designated trustees and employer-designated trustees. An Executive Finance Committee consisting of union and employer designated trustees functions between meetings of the Board of Trustees. In addition, an Administrative Manager functions between meetings of the Executive Finance Committee and the Board of Trustees. The Trustees are responsible for the administration of the Annuity Plan and their decisions are final. The Plan's fiscal year ends December 31st.
