CORE to disband; final meetings scheduled for August 16 and September 20, 2012

From CORE, August 6, 2012
CORE (Concerned Ohio Retired Educators) will hold an August meeting on Thursday, August 16th at the STRS building at 275 East Broad Street in Columbus. Parking is free in the STRS parking garage located behind the building. We encourage you to also attend the STRS Retirement Board meeting on the same day which usually begins around 9:00 in the meeting room on the 6th floor but this time varies from month to month. Lately the STRS meetings have been held most of the day on the following Friday as well as Thursday. For this reason, we suggest you check the STRS website ( to confirm the time.
Please remember that CORE meeting attendees usually leave the STRS meeting around 11:30 in order to go to the cafeteria on the 2nd floor to get our lunches. We then take our lunches to the small cafeteria room behind the Sublett Room on the 2nd floor where the CORE meeting begins promptly at 11:45.
The agenda for this August CORE meeting will be to plan our LAST meeting and ending ceremonies which will take place during the September 20th STRS Board meeting. At the September 20th CORE meeting, the CORE Board of Trustees will disperse the remaining treasury to the STRS healthcare fund for retired teachers with health care needs. The vote by the CORE Board of Trustees to call for the motion to disband the organization has already been approved. Our August 16th CORE meeting will provide to our CORE members the required 30 days notice of the motion to vote on the disbanding of the organization. We are hoping that all CORE trustees, officers, and members can attend both meetings. At the September CORE meeting, members will vote on the motion to disband the organization as well as discuss what we know about the final pension reform. The Sept. 20th meeting will also provide an opportunity for CORE folks to meet and say farewell.
