Division Of Personnel Announces Elections For Employee Representatives To Serve On The GESC Health Insurance Board

Kenneth L. Hermon, Jr., PHR, IPMA-CP, the Director of the Division of Personnel, is advising all employees who are members of the Government’s Group Health Insurance plan, that elections will be held for government employee representatives to the GESC Health Insurance Board on December 16, 2014 from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and December 17, 2014 from 8:00 – 12:00 noon, pursuant to Title 3, Chapter 1 § 6(b) of the VI Code.  That provision requires one employee from the district of St. Thomas/St. John and one from the district of St. Croix to be democratically chosen by other government employees who are members of the group insurance plan, to serve as a GESC Board member.

Director Hermon stated that “this is a great opportunity for employees to have a voice in the Health Insurance plan development process since the GESC Board is empowered to adopt rules and regulations relating to: (1) the eligibility of (a) active and (b) retired employees of the Government of the United States Virgin Islands to participate in the health insurance plan authorized by this subchapter, (2) the terms and conditions of the insurance contract or contracts, as applied to (a) active employees and (b) retired employees, (3) the purchase of such insurance contract or contracts and the administration of the health insurance plan, and (4) contracting with a third party administrator to administer a self-funded health insurance plan.”

Nominees for the ballot will consist of representation of the Central Labor Council, semiautonomous agencies, unclassified and classified employees, employees under the General Schedule (GS), the Legislature, Superior Court and the Supreme Court.  Requests for nominees have already been made of the Central Labor Council and semiautonomous agencies.

Any other employee interested in serving as a member of the GESC Board, may submit a “GESC Board Member Candidate Form” to either of Division’s offices located in the GERS Building at 3438 Kronprindsens Gade, St. Thomas, VI 00802 or on St. Croix to 3009 Orange Grove, Suite 6, Christiansted, St. Croix, VI 00802.  A copy of the form can be downloaded from the Division’s website page, or picked up from the Division’s offices.  The deadline to submit the GESC Candidate forms back to the Division is on or before Friday, November 21, 2014

A Celebration

Each and every day, public servants face unique challenges in the workplace. While the need for vital government services continues to grow, we increasingly ask our public servants to do more with less. Public Servants perform a myriad of tasks that we may all take for granted every day. They provide essential services and benefits including disease prevention, health care, public safety and security, securing our waters, providing education care and so much more.


Public Service Recognition Week is an appropriate time for us to applaud their efforts and to reflect on the value of public service, and give our civil servants the praise that so many richly deserve, but so seldom receive. They deserve our support and appreciation. With sincere gratitude for their important contributions and sacrifice, for putting service before self, we take this week to say THANK YOU.
