About EncourAGEnet

EncourAGEnet's purpose is linking, equipping, encouraging, and celebrating post-retirement service.

 

LEA EncourAGEnet was established in 2008. Among the Network's goals are to

·        prepare LEA members for post-retirement service

·        showcase examples of post-retirement service options

·        disseminate information about opportunities for service and resource people and  materials

·        encourage LEA connection to non-members by offering access to an e-mail distribution list, website, and Shaping the Future magazine.

Propose a sectional—and encourage others to do the same—for the 2019 LEA convocation. Please note: READ All INSTRUCTIONS AND INFORMATION, and be sure to CONFIRM your form when you’re done entering information. Ignore references to “price.” Also note: We added a topic category for “retirement” in hopes of filling each time slot with a topic of interest for the retired and soon-to-be retired participants.

EncourAGEnet Bulletin will be taking a little time off for Christmas vacation. Look for its return on January 11.
