Welcome to the Allegheny County
Retirees Association’s Website
The ACRA Board held a Zoom meeting on September 15, 2020 to discuss the possibility and safety of holding the remaining scheduled luncheons. We acknowledged that our members are in the most vulnerable target age for the Coronavirus. So, it is with a heavy heart that we have made the decision to cancel all remaining luncheons for the year 2020. Hopefully, we will see you on March 17, 2021 for the first meeting of 2021. Until we meet, please stay safe and healthy.
*All programs will depend on the status of the Coronavirus restrictions. Check our website for updates.
2020 ACRA ELECTION OF BOARD OF DIRECTORS NOTICE
The ACRA board has adopted temporary measures to conduct the 2020 election of board members in the presence of restrictions resulting from the efforts to contain the corona virus epidemic. The measures do not represent a revision of the bylaw provisions for conducting an election, but a temporary attempt to conduct business in light of the existing public health emergency.
If feasible, the Annual Meeting will be held in November as planned. If not, the December holiday party will serve as the Annual Meeting. Voting on the candidates will be done by the members in attendance. There will be no ballot mailed out this year.
The current incumbents have consented to be candidates. Any other member in good standing wishing to be a candidate must identify themselves and present a brief introduction of themselves to the membership via the regular mail address or e-mail address of the Association no later than October 15.
The Allegheny County Retirees Association (ACRA) is an advocacy and social organization for retirees of Allegheny County and their surviving spouses. Membership is limited to members of the County retirement system.
ACRA holds monthly luncheon meetings approximately nine times a year with informative speakers on retiree issues and matters of importance, such as our pensions, health care issues, and other concerns to seniors. When ACRA learns about issues affecting retirees, we inform our members and take action as necessary. ACRA publishes a quarterly newsletter which is distributed to our members and is available on this website. The organization also sponsors special activities of interest to the members, such as, visit to the History Museum, a summer picnic, tour of the Pittsburgh Botanic Gardens, to mention a few that have been arranged recently
Being a member of ACRA is a great opportunity to meet other retirees and to get reacquainted with former colleagues and friends.
Our hope is once you review the ACRA website, you will join our association.
