On a somber note, this month marks the three year anniversary of the horrific May 2019 Virginia Beach Municipal Center shooting. There will be an in-person ceremony for the community to gather and commemorate the lives lost and forever changed on 5/31. Please see our home page for more details and links for other ways the City plans to remember and how you can participate.
The Involvement Committee is continuing to work out details for alternate sites for our 2022 meetings and our Annual Holiday Luncheon. We would like to begin having speakers at our meetings again. If you have any suggestions for meeting sites and/or speakers, please email their information to the attention of our Involvement Committee at email@example.com.
The Communications Committee is seeking volunteers to assist with keeping our members informed. They are specifically looking for someone who can administer and maintain official social media sites for VBREA.
Get involved in VBREA!! We are in desperate need of more volunteers to serve on our Board and committees. There is a Director At-Large position vacant and we need a volunteer to chair and organize our Benefits Committee. You, the members, make VBREA what it is by participating.
Thank you to those that have volunteered to help on the committees. Contact our Webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in any positions on the Board or committees. Please help to continue making VBREA a wonderful organization for City of Virginia Beach retirees.
The VBREA website is updated often so check it out often to stay informed about events and other messages posted which relate to retirement issues: www.vbrea.org. Add VBREA.org to your favorites. Also, check your email often for important information from VBREA as blasts are sent by the Communications Committee. Check your Spam folder just in case the VBREA emails end up there. Also check the calendar for upcoming VBREA and City events. So much is going on and I want each retiree to be informed and enjoy. Be sure to inform us with address changes if you move or if you change your email address so you don't miss any communication from us.
Remember, this is your organization and the members make it what it is.
