We had a great Luncheon last week with almost 100 attendees. As usual Gregg and team put out a tasty and hearty lunch buffet and we had a strong group of County presenters. We are always thankful for the presence of County Board Members and the County Manager.
As follow-up from the luncheon presentations last week, the ACREA Board wants to note that the Human Resources Department has begun the once every four years election of Trustee and Substitute Trustee representing retirees to the Arlington County Employees’ Retirement System Board. As discussed last week, the Retirement Board is responsible for the sound management of Arlington County’s pension plan assets among other duties.
You probably have received a letter this week announcing the beginning of the nomination phase on October 15 and the subsequent election process. Please review the letter and understand the process for selecting these important representatives. The ACREA Board hopes the membership will actively participate in the nomination and election process. If you need assistance with the nominating or voting processes, you can contact the Human Resources Department (703-228-3500, Option 1, or Benefits@arlingtonva.us).
Be on the look-out for a new ACREA newsletter in November and note our next Luncheon is scheduled for May 7, 2019.
