RBF Board Election

IF YOU’RE a member of the Retirement Benefits Fund you’ll soon be receiving a ballot paper from the Electoral Commission to elect member representatives to the Board.  Members of the Defined Benefits scheme get to elect one of the 7 Board members, and those in the Tas Accumulation scheme get to elect one Board member.  Trustee Board members are central to the running of RBF so if you want a fund that acts in your best interests you need to exercise your vote.

 Neroli Ellis

“With your support I can continue to ensure RBF is a truly member-focused superannuation fund.

I am Secretary of the Australian Nursing Federation, with qualifications in Nursing, Business and Superannuation and a Fellow of Australian Institute Company Directors and Australian Institute Superannuation Trustees.

Super is part of your wages and conditions, and it must be managed exclusively for your benefit. 

I am a professionally qualified company director and superannuation trustee and I commit to :

 • Ensuring the fund’s assets are respected as your money and your financial security. 

• Working for improved member services and reduced costs for members.

• Using  my extensive background in health and health reform to promote key member issues, including advocating for a review of investment in tobacco.

I am a truly independent serving RBF Board member working in your interests.”


Tas Accumulation Scheme Members

We seek your support for Chris Bevan who is standing as your representative.  Read more about Chris below.


Chris Bevan“With my board experience, work history and dedication to fighting for those who need help I feel well-qualified to represent you on the RBF Board.

Since joining the public sector in 1972 I worked in accounts, workers compensation management, plant management, payroll, personnel and Human Resources.

I retired from Forestry Tasmania in 2002 where I was employed as an Industrial Relations Adviser.  

I acted as an advocate before Industrial Commissions, the Administrative Appeals and Workers Compensation Tribunals and the Commissioner for Review.  

As a long term CPSU Member I was elected to CPSU Council and Executive and in 1989 was seconded to the CPSU as an Industrial Officer to help Members affected by the Field Government’s redundancies.

Since 2006 I’ve been Chairperson of the Board of Workskills, the not-for-profit job placement organisation with an annual turnover of around $8M.

Over many years I’ve demonstrated that I won’t be bullied into compromising my principles.”

Please contact Neroli or Chris if you have any questions about their candidacy
