CORE meeting scheduled for February 18, 2010

From CORE, February 3, 2010
CORE (Concerned Ohio Retired Educators) will hold its February meeting on Thursday, February 18th at the STRS building at 275 East Broad Street in Columbus. Parking is free in the STRS parking garage behind the building. We encourage you to also attend the STRS Board meeting which usually begins around 9:00 a.m. on Thursday in the meeting room on the 6th floor but this beginning time varies from month to month. For this reason, we suggest you check with the STRS website ( to confirm the time. The STRS Board meetings usually include Friday as well as Thursday so you might want to check on this too.
Remember that CORE meeting attendees usually leave the STRS meeting around 11:30 on Thursday in order to get lunch in the cafeteria room (behind the Sublett Room) on the second floor of the STRS building where the CORE meeting will begin promptly at 11:45.
If you have suggestions for the February CORE meeting agenda, please send a reply to John Curry at so that he can relay this information to CORE President, Dave Parshall.
Copies of the media letter, recently written by a CORE committee, will be available for distribution at the February CORE meeting. Members can use this media letter in writing letters to the editor of newspapers in response to the recent criticism of public pensions. Also at the Feb. meeting, members can pick up copies of petitions for candidates for the upcoming Spring STRS Board elections. CORE attendees at this February 18th meeting will be deciding the candidates which CORE will support for this election. Please join us for this most important endorsement decision-making. We need your input. The committee that attended the CORE/Nehf meeting on February 8th will also be reporting.
