I drove down to the MACRS Cape conference on Sunday, June 6, 2010 and I spoke to folks that had been there for all the classes on both Saturday and Sunday and they were pleased with the content and presentations. I had the privilege and honor of presenting a session on Pre-retirement Counseling, which was a great success due mostly to the great input from my colleagues. I asked, and they responded with some beautifully organized checklists they have developed, and they shared the insights they have realized over the years. Some very good hints and tips. All the materials from my (our) presentation are uploaded to our website under the “Other Systems” tab (see the drop-down within the tab).
Again my greatest thanks to these fine people:Michael Sacco for his thoughtful guidance and sharp mind.
