On April 23, NJREA will host its annual Spring Luncheon. Throughout this popular, member-exclusive event, retirees will learn more about what they can do to act on important issues, as well as how we can work together to continue to preserve the pensions and benefits public school employees—both active and retired— have earned.
This luncheon event is held in honor of Dr. Frederick L. Hipp, past executive director of NJEA. Hipp was instrumental in the formation of NJREA and was a leading advocate force throughout the state. In 1976, the New York Times named 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 a “Member Information Session” at 11 a.m., where attendees will receive updates and ask questions.
The cost is $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. Members wishing to sit with their counties should indicate this intention on the coupon form provided in the NJREA Newsletter. Reserved seating requests will only be honored if received by the April 9 registration deadline.
Can’t stay for the whole event? For $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, indicate your intention on the coupon found in the March NJREA Newsletter and include your membership PIN.
To register, send the coupon found in the March NJREA Newsletter along with your check (payable to NJREA) to NJREA First Vice President Joan Wright, 109 Bayberry Drive, Somerset, NJ 08873 by Thursday, April 9. Be sure to include your meal choice of flounder Florentine, chicken piccata or stuffed shells. All are accompanied by salad, rolls and dessert.
