OCREA

Welcome

From The President’s Desk:
 
Hello Members of OCREA,

It’s that time of the year when we reconvene for our first meeting of the 2017-2018 year.
 
Our first meeting will incorporate a Members’ Benefit Fair before the Luncheon at the same location.  See the Luncheon Chair’s article and the First Vice President’s/Member Benefits’ article for full details courtesy of Janice Sovinee, Peggy Keane and Carol Cousins.  The Women of the Wavelet will be assisting with the sale of the Tee Shirts that benefit the Philanthropic Fund.
 
At this meeting, the Officers of OCREA will be sworn in, the members of the Executive Board will be introduced and the Women of the Wavelet will be recognized.  You know I always repeat: It takes a village, etc,. etc., etc.!!!!
 
Changes to the OCREA Constitution have been posted in the Wavelet and are on the web site thanks to Joe Cavallaro and his committee.
 
In addition, the election of officers for the Philanthropic Fund will be held.  Information regarding the Philanthropic Constitution changes are printed in the Wavelet and are on the Web site courtesy of Iver Kennedy and Ceil Colon.
 
I think I’ll stop now before I divulge the interesting information and updates from the Officers and members of the Executive Board.
 
I would like to thank you all for your confidence in voting for the Officers for the next two years.  I, especially, know how diligent they are in their own way and manner of attending to their duties.  During the periods that we are not meeting as a Board, there are numerous phone calls, emails and small committee meetings to take care of the myriad details that enable OCREA to function on your behalf.
 
We all enjoy the Luncheon and Holiday meetings where we socialize,  keep abreast of issues that crop up and hear from guest speakers.  You know when I’m at the podium and remind us that it is time for the ‘commercial’, I’m serious.  Some of the issues always pertain to some of the members.  If they don’t particularly pertain to you, that’s terrific; however, even if we assist one member at a meeting for a question that requires an answer from a board member, it’s worth it.  So, I beg your indulgence and patience.  That is why we’re available.  Again, we provide the answers or will research and provide a personal answer for you. The Executive Board has a wonderful working relationship and you benefit from their attention to detail on everyone’s behalf. 
 
We wish you a great 2017-2018 OCREA year, welcome your attendance, your support, your volunteering and your continued good health.
 
Warm regards,
Rae Saulino, President
