Promoting the Retirees Association on Campus
The Association’s board is taking steps to promote our programs and activities among current campus staff and faculty. A liaison relationship has been established with the Staff Advisory Board, which represents all career staff employees.
Issues arise from time to time that have implications for both active employees and retirees, and this formalized connection will provide a means for both organizations to coordinate their responses to such matters as changes in health care benefits.
In November, the Retirees and Emeriti Associations co-coordinate a special open enrollment forum with the Health Care Facilitator designed to answer questions specific to retirees' health care options and concerns. In addition, in March a panel of retirees participated in a pre-retirement workshop sponsored by the Benefits Office. This is an important outreach effort that helps current employees plan for and realize their dreams for retirement.
