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.

Don’t forget… SECnet’s listserv not only serves as a delivery method for EncourAGEnet Bulletin but also provides you an opportunity to network with  your retired colleagues. If you have a question or seek ideas to solve a problem post it to encouragenet@listserv.cuchicago.edu. The listserv, however, is not for personal communications.
