2004 Annual Meeting: New Location & Many New Faces

- This year, the 36th Annual Meeting of our Association was held at a
new venue - the Sheraton Colonial in Wakefield on September 17.

600 members - many attending their first Annual Meeting - received a
full report of all Association activities over the past year, and an
update of ongoing activity at the local, state and national levels.

Association officers addressed the membership and were available to
answer individual questions after the meeting. Health insurance claims
and the Social Security Windfall/Offset laws were of greatest personal

"This was my first Annual
Meeting," said Evelyn Melanson of Lynn who stayed late to discuss an
insurance problem involving Medicare. "I enjoyed the meeting very much,
especially the friendliness of the members, most of whom I did not
know. The Association did everything to make us feel right at home."
