VIRTUAL CHAPTER MEETING MONDAY, MARCH. 7, 1 PM. The meeting will be in two parts:
Part 1: A NY State Climate Agenda. There is a bold package of twelve urgently needed climate bills currently before the NY State Legislature. Peter Iwanowicz, the Executive Director of Environmental Advocates NY, will guide us through the legislation. Iwannowicz is a former Commissioner of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and was the very first director of the New York State Office of Climate Change.
Discussion will follow,
Part 2: Healthcare Updates on the current status of retiree healthcare changes. As we move toward the tentative April 1 deadline for implementation of the retiree healthcare changes and as a lawsuit trying to halt those changes proceeds through the courts, members have lots of questions. We’ll provide updates. This part of the meeting will start around 2 pm.
