The purpose of the Communication Committee is to provide timely, accurate and easy to read information to all or selected groups of retirees.

Our immediate and ongoing goal would be to implement and maintain the website, We will maintain the website in order to provide information to all retirees and to provide a discussion page, i.e., an outlet for retirees to communicate with one another about retirement concerns.  We also envision that the website could be expanded in the future to provide an outlet for retirees to communicate with each other about social activities, and to share information that could be helpful to those City employees contemplating retirement (based on our experience with the actual deed).

A second immediate goal is to communicate with new retirees in a professional yet friendly fashion that will encourage them to join CMERA.

A mid range goal is to establish a regular mailing (newsletter) to all CMERA members and a bi-annual mailing to ALL retirees.

A second mid range goal is to establish regular social activities that promote CMERA and encourage retirees to join the group.

All goals are subject to approval by the Board of Directors/Executive Committee.
