                                      NYSUT RETIREE CONFERENCE: October 17, 2023

Dear WSR Members:

You have undoubtedly received our 2023 Retiree Conference flyer in the mail within the last few days. 

We are excited to be holding this year's conference at the Marriott in Melville - a new space for us which 

we believe will suit our needs extremely well. The link below can be used to take you directly to the registration site. Payment can be made by credit card or by check - directions are on the site. Our space does limit us to a finite number of registrants, so I encourage you to register as early as possible to avoid being shut out of our conference this year.

**If you have any changes to your
contact information, please email Jennifer
Loughran, Communications, so that we
have the most updated information:


The Executive Board meets monthly from September-June. We  plan and brainstorm, keeping all our members up-to-date on pertinent information. We revived our newsletter. The latest edition came out  June 2023. To view, click the link at the bottom of this page. All members received an email copy. Also, check out the "NEWS!" page on this website to view the  brochure we are send to all new retirees.

In-person luncheons are back but we are keeping  general membership ZOOM meetings every year. They proved to be a great addition! They allow those who live a distance away, or who just cannot make an in-person meeting, the ability to participate and connect. We hold 3 luncheons a year for all members. Our latest  Luncheon was June 8, 2023. Our latest Zoom membership meeting was held January 30, 2023 at 2pm.

                   **Next Exec Board Meeting: October 26, 2023
