WHAT’S NEW

 

  • SEEKING COPRA BOARD OF DIRECTOR MEMBERS

     

    We are nearing the time of year when we will be “seeking” new Board of Director members for COPRA.

     

    COPRA is an important organization that is always working diligently to develop, promote and carry out activities for the benefit of COPRA members and ALL City of Phoenix retirees. Many of the improvements and protections of pensions and other benefits have come through the efforts of COPRA.

     

    If you feel you are the kind of person that can make a difference, consider submitting your name to run as a candidate for the COPRA Board! We need COPRA members who are committed to our cause, are enthusiastic, who are willing to be an advocate for retirees and have an overall desire to make a difference for our retiree population.

     

    There are 12 elected positions on the Board, each serving a two-year term. Elections are staggered with six Board positions coming up for election each year.

     

    Candidate biographies and ballots will be included in the November issue of the COPRA Chronicle with the actual election taking place at a virtual Annual Meeting on Friday, December 4, 2020.
