You are invited to join us for the PERI Annual Meeting which will again be held at The Crowne Plaza Hotel in Northeast Columbus on Monday September 26th. The hotel is conveniently located just minutes off Interstate 71 and State Route 161. Features include free parking, a covered drop off area outside the lobby, great sleeping rooms if needed and outstanding food.
This year will be as exciting as ever with a report on our newly adopted strategic plan and vision for PERI’s next five years of growth and service to our members. This event always sells out quickly so you don’t want to delay in sending in your registration. We expect nearly 600 of our members to be in attendance.
Registration will be from 9:00 to 9:45 a.m. Coffee, tea, and a pastry will be available during that time.
The business meeting will start at 10 a.m. and will feature reports from the PERI President & CEO Geoff Hetrick, Secretary/Treasurer Thomas George, Legislative Counsel John Gilchrist, and Chairman of the Board of Trustees Bev Calvert. Additionally, we will announce the new Board of Trustee members for the remainder of 2016 through the Annual Meeting in 2017.
Before and after the business meeting, we will have representatives from OPERS, OneExchange, Social Security, Deferred Comp, Medical Mutual and the Ohio Department of Insurance located at tables in the hallway to answer your questions. Lunch will be served after the business meeting. The entrée choices this year are shown at the right.
Our keynote speaker will be Ms. Karen Carraher, Executive Director of OPERS, who will bring us up to date on important issues.
Come with great expectations for a rewarding time of learning, sharing, ideas, and fellowship with OPERS retirees from around the state. Don’t forget to register as soon as possible as this event will definitely sell out. We look forward to seeing you there!
