- Next Retiree Chapter meeting, Tuesday, 14 November, 1 pm in the AFT 2121 office.
- Rodger Scott spoke glowingly about the life of Ray Berard, friend of the people and unionist forever, Friday afternoon, 15 September, in the John Adams Campus Auditorium.
Although still recovering himself, Rodger conducted the memorial to Ray encouraging the many attendees, representing diverse groups across San Francisco, to speak about Ray. We learned besides the over forty years of engagement in union politics wearing a bow tie, every year Ray reserved the same box at the SF Opera. In retirement, he remained an active 2121 Retiree member and traveled the world to attend opera.
- On January 12, 2017, the Retiree Chapter once again presented for all faculty AFT 2121’s annual Retirement and Financial Planning Day, now in its eighth year. Always a popular event with faculty, this year it attracted almost 200 faculty members, a record number considering the recent downsizing of the college. This year’s event featured 22 informative workshops, continental breakfast, lunch with a keynote speaker, and Professional Development flex activity credit for all workshops. If you missed this year’s event, plan on attending the next one in January 2018!
