Greetings to all,
First let me thank the 2010 delegates at the Delegate Assembly and Convention for their vote of confidence by electing me President Elect of Florida Retired Educators Association. The opportunity to serve as President-Elect was an enjoyable rewarding experience.
Secondly, thanks to all in attendance at the 2012 Delegate Assembly and Convention who participated in my installation as President of FREA. I am grateful and humble for this opportunity and look forward to our continued commitment to each other as we work for retired educators. With the help of the Almighty and your support I will have a successful tenure.
Our theme for 2012-2013 is “Stay Connected”. At the Assembly I challenged each member and unit to stay connected. Stay Connected with our State officers, State Committee Chairs, and your local unit members. Use whatever piece of technological equipment, method of communication that works best for you and your members to stay connected and informed. Not only are we to stay connected, but also committed to the goals and objectives of FREA. It is our goal to continue to work for the needs of retired educators and benefits for our members.
