Centurion Conference and Event Centre, Ottawa February 18, 2017 — The organizers’ concerns about having a low turnout because of the Family Day long weekend proved in vain as over 130 future pensioners turned out for both the French and the English sessions.

RTO/ERO volunteers came in at 7:00 A.M., to fill the registration bags and helped set-up the registration tables. District 27 President Roger Lalonde, Past President, Norbert Boudreau and 1st VP Terry Craig greeted people coming in and directed them to the appropriate registration tables.

The morning sessions beginning at 9:15 A.M., given by Sue Jones in English and by Roger Régimbal in French. They spoke about OTPP, OMERS and CPP pension plans as well as the many other personal and financial considerations that future retirees have to weigh before make the big decision to retire.

The morning session ended at noon. The Centurion Centre staff was very helpful. They shared their expertise on the most efficient way to set up a buffet. The food was excellent, and many people went back for seconds.

The afternoon session started at 1:00 P.M. with guest speakers Stephen Wong and Ashveena Govindaraju from Johnson Inc. who spoke about the RTO\ERO Health Benefit Group plans available to future retirees when their current employer’s benefit plan terminates upon retirement.

All participants received a complimentary gift card upon submission of their evaluation form. Two of the participants were the lucky winners in the draw of two iPad tablets.

Special thanks to all the volunteer Board members for making this 2017 RPW another successful event.
