The Tenure Reduction, Retirement and Emeriti Committee shall advise

of retirement, and rights of the emeriti.
Membership of the Tenure Reduction, Retirement and Emeriti Committee
is fixed and consists of 3 faculty, at least one of which must be an emeritus/emerita
professor, and at least one faculty member who has signed up for the tenure
reduction program, plus the University Benefits Officer (ex officio, non-voting)
and the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs (ex officio, non-voting).
The Tenure Reduction, Retirement and Emeriti Committee shall report
to the University Senate. At a minimum this report shall be in the form
of an annual written report submitted by the Committee Chair to the Secretary
of the University Senate no later than the final University Senate meeting

See also US01/02-4
which is a process for filling vacancies on elected committees:
7.1 Since 1991-92, all non-elected committees established by faculty legislation
are appointed by the Committee on Committees, a committee appointed by
the University Senate. The Secretary of the Faculty shall coordinate the
elections of faculty to elective committees. The secretary shall arrange
for the filling of vacancies on elected committees and councils by notifying
the next eligible candidate, determined in descending order of the number
of votes received in the most recent election for the relevant committee
or council. If no eligible candidate is available to fill the vacancy,
the Senate Executive Committee, with advice and recommendations from the
Committee on Committees, shall appoint an eligible faculty member to fill
the vacancy until the next regular election cycle. Filling a vacancy shall
not preclude the appointee from standing for election to the same committee
or council during the next election cycle if eligible.
