This will be the first in a series of standing meetings at the annual conference among Section leaders and the retired professionals. The goal will be to discuss current issues, opportunities and programs that the Board and other Section personnel are working on. The desired outcomes are to: 1) inform the retiree community of current events within the Section; and 2) where appropriate, seek input from retirees who may have useful experience or knowledge that might inform planning and decisions by Section leaders.
