Growing our power

On April 10, NJREA will host its annual Spring Luncheon. Throughout this popular member-exclusive event, retirees can learn more about what they can do to act on important issues, as well as how we can work together to continue to restore respect for public education and preserve the pensions and benefits public school employees have earned.

This luncheon event is held in honor of Dr. Frederick L. Hipp, past executive director of NJEA. Dr. Hipp was instrumental in the formation of NJREA and was a leading advocate throughout the state. In 1976, The New York Times named Dr. Hipp one of the eight “most powerful men” in New Jersey.

The luncheon will be held at the Nottingham Ballroom in Hamilton. The business agenda begins with the Delegate Council meeting at 10 a.m., followed by the “Member Information Session” at 11 a.m., where attendees will receive updates and can ask questions about the information shared.

The total cost remains just $33, which includes a continental breakfast, your choice of lunch, and all taxes and gratuities. Reminder: As per NJREA policy, only NJREA members may attend the business meeting and luncheon. Any member wishing to sit together with their county should indicate this intention on the coupon form provided. Reserved seating requests will be honored only if received by the registration deadline.

Can’t stay for the whole event? For just $5, attendees have the option to join their fellow retirees for breakfast and sit in on the day’s Delegate Council meeting and/or Member Information Session, but not stay for lunch. Should you wish to do so, please indicate your intention on the coupon form found in the March NJREA Newsletter. This coupon is also available on under the “coupons” heading.

To register, send the coupon along with your check (payable to NJREA) to NJREA Second Vice President Joan Wright, 109 Bayberry Drive, Somerset, NJ 08873 by Friday, March 29. Be sure to include your meal choice of Chicken Francaise, Vegetable Primavera, or Shrimp Cocktail with soup and salad. All are accompanied by salad, rolls, and dessert.
