Get involved in VBREA!! We are in desperate need of more volunteers to serve on our Board and committees. The Secretary position is vacant, the Vice President position will be vacant at the end of the year, and there is one At-Large Director position vacant. We also 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 email@example.com 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.
