ANNUAL DINNERS
Once a year hundreds of Intel retirees gather at various major sites for our annual dinners. This is an opportunity to renew friendships, network and hear current Intel news. Annual dinners are open to retirees and their guest. Visit site calendars (or see calendars below) for specific event details at your nearby site. Email invitations will be sent in September to IRO members who are near a site where there is a dinner.

Sites still looking for speakers are Folsom and New Mexico. If you would like to recommend any current Intel VP as a speaker,  send the name and site to our mailbox and we will take care of the invitation to speak at our fall dinner.  Names and bios can be found here.

ADD TO THE DYNAMICS OF THE IRO BOARD AS THE NEW SECRETARY
IRO has an opening for Board Secretary beginning January 1, 2017. To view all IRO roles, including Board Secretary, please visit our new Roles & Responsibilities page here. If you are interested in joining this dynamic and fun team and be in the know, send an email to intelretiree@gmail.com with a brief bio and let us know your interests.

TAKE A SURVEY AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE
The IRO board is looking for input to help target our products, services and communication methods to meet your needs! One thousand of you will be receiving a short survey that will arrive in your mailbox right after Labor Day from the Intel Retiree Organization. So be alert for our request and check your spam folder, just in case. Thanks in advance for the help!

Intel Get Matched replaces the fall community giving campaign and will annually match retiree donations up to $5,000 for eligible non-profits, PLUS $5,000 for qualifying educational organizations. Donations can be made using credit cards, stock, or even from a donor-advised fund. For complete details of the program click here.

NO CHANGES TO THE INTEL INVOLVED PROGRAM
