SEPTEMBER 18, 2013: The Association will be in Pittsfield, MA this Friday for our annual Berkshire Area Meeting, held once again at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

As is typically the case with all Association events, the meeting begins at 1:00 PM and runs until approximately 3:00. Association officials will be on hand to answer member's questions, as well as to provide an update on the latest retirement news. Attendance prizes will be drawn at the close of the meeting.

Most important, long-time Association President Ralph White will be introducing incoming president Frank Valeri to our Western Mass. members. As members know, White opted not to seek reelection as president after having served the Association in that capacity for 45 years. Valeri assumes the office in December, at which time White will become a vice president.
