BREAKING NEWS TO OUR MEMBERS
In our 25-year history, the HPROA has been tasked with assisting its members wherever the need might be, usually with the focus on pension and insurance issues. Now, the health and well-being of many of our regular and associate members is at stake due to COVID-19. I recognize that this is a time of uncertainty for many of our members, particularly with the financial and health impact this crisis has had on our age-group. Our message to you is that the strength of our association shows in these times of need.
Now, with COVID-19, the needs for social interaction, transportation for medical assistance, grocery purchasing, financial assistance, and a host of other pandemic-related issues have come to the forefront. Please remember this world virus is an issue we have never faced, but by pulling together, our association is determined to meet the challenge.
We want to help our members, but first we need to know where that assistance is needed. The HPROA Board of Directors will meet next week via a remote conferencing connection. At that time, one of our agenda items will be to discuss what we can do as an association to assist our members. To do this, we need to understand two perspectives: We will first determine the actual need, then identify resources toward that end. Accordingly, if you have any type of need, we want to hear about it. Please go to our website and visit the “Contact Us” link. Let us know before next Thursday’s Board Meeting of any needs that you might have, or known and verified needs of other HPROA members. As always, we are here as an association to try to help both of our regular and associate members.
At the end of the day, our association is about people, those members who have served, and those members who continue to serve. My thoughts and prayers are with you during these frightening times.
