FEHBP Open Season begins November 11, 2013 and ends on December 9, 2013. Our health benifits are more important than ever. Stay informed and STAY COVERED!
Our HOLIDAY LUNCHEON will be held on December 11, 2013 at Bistro10UN, 1130 Market Street (6th floor) at 7TH Street, San Francisco. You can find more information here. You can also print a copy of the reservation coupon and mail it before November 18 to insure a seat for yourself and your guests. We didn't forget about the "door prize" drawing at the luncheon. As most of you know, it's always fun to end our luncheon with the drawing. You just never know what's in those pretty wrapped packages. For those of you, who enjoy participating, please bring a wrapped gift to the luncheon. Thank you!
NOMINATING COMMITTEE: JESS RAMOS, 875 SANCHEZ ST, SF, CA 94114; 826-3337 The Chapter will elect its officers for 2014 at the December luncheon/meeting. Chapter members interested in serving as the chapter's officers, president, vice presidents, treasurer or secretary should get in touch with Jess Ramos (826-3337) or Herman Bracey (668-2337) no later than the December luncheon/meeting so that your name can be included on the ballot. As you all know, the five elected officers and many non-elected chapter members serving on committees together perform the varied and important tasks that enable Chapter 65 to operate and attract new members. Chapter 65 is totally run by volunteers and more volunteers are always needed. All chapter members should consider giving a helping hand to members who are already working to keep Chapter 65 an effective service organization. If you want to become an active member, contact any of the members whose names appear on the left side of the monthly newsletter to find out how you can help. Run for office. Join a committee.
