Dear REACMC Members,
This is not just one more message to add to the hundreds that you have been receiving lately with regard to COVID-19 and the precautions that it requires. It is not my intent to add to your stress; to the contrary, I am reaching out simply to let you know that we, your REACMC Executive Committee members, are thinking of you. We sincerely hope that you and your loved ones are well.
We will continue to keep you informed, as we have in the past, even though we will not be holding any County-wide meetings in the coming days. We regret the cancellation of the upcoming May 20, 2020, General Membership Meeting that was to take place at the Cape May-Lewes Ferry Terminal. This decision was reluctantly made in order to safeguard everyone’s health and well-being. We, however, do plan to hold the next General Membership Meeting in October as we have done in the past, date and location to follow. For those of you who sent checks for the March 18, 2020, General Membership Meeting (that was also cancelled) and asked us to apply the checks to the May meeting, we will shred those checks at this time. If you would prefer to have your check returned, please call Sharon Popper at (609) 602-0046. We apologize for any inconvenience that these changes have caused. Hopefully, barring any future extraordinary circumstances, we will be able to hold our regularly scheduled meeting in October. We look forward to seeing you then!
Please open ALL emails in the coming days from NEA, NJEA, and NJREA that will keep you abreast of the latest developments with regard to pension, health benefits, social security, and more. The REACMC will also send emails to keep you informed. If you can, feel free to share any information you receive from us with other members, especially with any members you may know who do not use email regularly or at all. At this time, the use of email to communicate with everyone, has become very helpful. Also, check your member profile on the njea.org website to make sure that your contact information is correct. If you haven’t provided an email, you will only receive information when we send out our County newsletter in the regular mail.
We appreciate that now, more than ever before, taking care of yourself and your family, should be your first priority. Confidential support is available to you and family 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for professional, legal and financial help, as well as for mental health assistance. One of the best benefits of your membership comes to you by calling (866) AID-NJEA for confidential.support. If you know a member who needs this support, please encourage the phone call. This is a life-saving service that can be used by members in need at any time.
Stay well, stay home, stay hydrated,
Carol Ann McDonald,
Celebrate NJREA’s 100th Anniversary with an NJREA Shirt or Jacket and show your pride.
