Pension Committee – Oct 2017
This month the Committee was fortunate enough to attend MPP’s annual GM in New Westminster. We received some valuable information that will now be shared with our members on a monthly basis through social media. We have our first Pension Seminar for members on Nov 3 and Nov 4. This event was filled within a few hours. Due to this, the Committee is looking into doing a 1-day seminar in the future.
In Solidary, Eric J, Marcey C, Val C, & Debra M
