ANDREW S. GROVE MEMORIAL UPDATE
Intel has informed the Intel Retiree Organization that a memorial for Andy Grove will be held for Intel employees on May 26. This memorial will be a video shared simultaneously on other employee sites. Unfortunately, space is limited and not available to include Intel retirees. Intel Studios is planning to record the event, with the intention of making the video available for limited viewing by Intel employees and retirees.

We received a question about Intel retirees having access to the Adidas, Columbia and Nike employee stores. Intel retirees will not have access. Adidas and Columbia now require Intel employee badges, instead of a flyer for entry. Since retirees don’t have badges so there is no way to grant access. Nike restricts usage to a number of participating employees from the Oregon site. Due to this restriction, Intel is not considering extending this opportunity to Intel retirees.
