As I personally embark on a trip of a lifetime, an Alaskan cruise including the inland tour, I believe the NBSRT is embarking on an exciting era also. We are on the move!

Initiatives have already begun to increase our membership. Our Ad Hoc Committee set a blueprint of activities at both the local and provincial level to make us more vibrant, active and fun. Our partnership with the NBTA in hosting the initial reception prior to the NBTA Luncheon got glowing reviews and allowed us a place to encourage new retirees to look at us!

Our Ad Hoc Wellness group is doing stellar work in their areas to show that we must be healthy physically emotionally and mentally to live our best life post retirement. And they are spreading the word through their local committees!

Our Ad Hoc Scholarship Committee is letting us invest in the education of N.B. youth in starting the scholarship and bursary process for deserving recipients. With the assistance of my hard-working and dedicated executive, I hope to make the NBSRT even more relevant and productive for all our members. In the future I would like to see a seamless transition from membership in the NBTA to membership in the NBSRT.

To make this happen I ask each of you personally to invite and take a potential new member to your local social event. It is the one-on-one personal touch that will allow us to grow. This summer I plan in my home branch, GMART- Moncton area, to make phone calls and emails to my former colleagues to ask they join us at our September barbecue. Similarly I wrote a personal message to each retiree this year to consider joining our organization.

Remember we are a team! We succeed together. Hope to talk to many of you in the next two years of my presidency. If I can help in any way contact me at macnairj@rogers.com. Let's have a super trip!
