Greetings Brothers and Sisters: 

The Region 2B Retired Workers Council meeting will be held: 

Tuesday April 9, 2019
Sawmill Creek Resort
400 Sawmill Creek
Huron, OH 44839

This letter is being sent to the chairperson only. It is the responsibility of the chairperson to notify their other board members. You may duplicate this letter or go online at region2b.uaw.org

This meeting is limited to the top four officers (Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, Recording Secretary, and Financial Secretary) per each chapter and their spouses.  If a top four officer is unable to attend, another member of the chapter’s Executive Board may attend as a substitute. 

Registration will be held Tuesday morning, April 9th from 9:00 am until 9:50 am. 

The meeting will be called to order at 10:00 am. The Director’s lunch will be served at 12 noon and the meeting will reconvene at 1:00 pm. 

In addition to our regular business, we will hold nominations and elections for the Region 2B Retired Workers Council officers, including statewide chairpersons for Ohio and Indiana. 

Delegates wishing to run or vote for these positions must be present at this meeting. 

Lodging and reservations are the responsibility of the delegates. If you plan on arriving the night before, check in time is after 3:00 pm EST. The room rate is $97 plus tax. Please make your reservations as soon as possible, but no later than Friday, March 9, 2019, by calling Sawmill Creek at 1-800-729-6455 and mention the group code “UAW” to receive the discounted room rate. 

Mileage, including tolls, will be paid to the driver only and we ask at least four people per vehicle. Drivers must provide Social Security number and toll receipts for reimbursement.

The Region 2B Retired Workers Council will also pick up the cost for one-night lodging for delegates who must travel 100 miles or more (one way) to attend this meeting. This decision, made by our Director and the Council Board Members, is to insure every local retiree chapter is given the opportunity to participate in this very important meeting. 

In order to provide proper meals and materials, everyone must complete the enclosed registration form and return it to Katie no later than March 9, 2019 by mail to Region 2B UAW, 1691 Woodlands Drive, Maumee, OH 43537, or by email to [email protected]. 

It is very important that everyone abide by the guidelines outlined in this letter. I trust you will and thank you in advance for your cooperation. 

Final note** Each established Retiree Chapter must have an updated list of officers (delegates) on file at the Region 2B Office. Please complete the enclosed form. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT as only the top four officers listed on file at the Region will be allowed to vote for the Retired Workers Council board positions. The local retiree chapter chairpersons will elect the statewide area council chairperson for Ohio and Indiana. Return it to the Regional Office as soon as possible to Katie either by mail, or email ([email protected]). 

I look forward to seeing everyone at the meeting and thanks again for your cooperation.  Drive safe! 

In solidarity,
Ted Fleming, Chairman
Region 2B, UAW Retiree Council
