FROM THE BOARD – Barb Frank, President

A PAT ON THE BACK
Our mailbox received a nice compliment from Phil Skeba, a 2016 retiree, who wrote, “I just want all of you to know how much I appreciate the work that you do in behalf of the Intel Retirees. I just received the March update and it is full of great info and tips on making sure we stay current with Intel developments.” As President, I’d like to thank all of our 30 IRO volunteers who have made our growing organization of 5,000 worldwide retirees so successful. Our committees (Health, Benefits, Volunteer & Donations, Website, Communication and Site representatives) work closely with Intel to keep us all connected and informed. If you are interested in becoming involved, drop us a note at intelretiree@gmail.com.

ASK IRO Mailbox
Question: I am confused about my IRO email address. What is it and why do I need it?
Answer: See FAQs for detailed information. As always, you may send your specific questions/issues to the IRO Mailbox.

ATTENDANCE AT BOARD MEETINGS is open to all retirees who are members of IRO. If you would like to listen to your board at work, please send a request with one week’s notice to Barb Frank at Frankbarbara@sbcglobal.net.
