Branch Activities and Events

Members Survey

Our branch prepared a survey in 2015 and in 2018 where members were asked to list and describe the types of events and/or activities they wished us to arrange throughout the year. The number and variety of responses received, including positive feedback on our choices in speakers, enables us to proceed to plan a series of stand-alone activities and events. In addition, we have assembled a list of potential guest speakers to attend our general meetings and outreach sessions.

We will continue to seek input from our members for ideas for future happenings. Please contact us to share with us your proposed topics and/or speakers for general meetings, stand-alone meetings, and outreach meetings.

In order for these events to become reality, it takes the efforts of our volunteers. We are always looking for new volunteers to help and we welcome those who wish to be involved. If there is a particular activity that appeals to you or one that you can share with your expertise, please contact us.

Completed Events and Activities

The survey completed by our members has helped us identify the activities and events to respond to our members' interests. Our Federal Retirees branch board also participates in many community events to reach existing members and to insight new members. The following events and/or activities were successfully attended and delivered to our members:


2023 November: This was a wonderful Annual General Meeting offering a lovely turkey lunch and some amusing games for all to participate. 

2023 September: We were successful scheduling a meeting while inviting some various parties representatives for the October provincial election in Manitoba. Our president provided the MC duties (photo). See the invited panel here.

2023 June:  Some members of your branch board did attend the multi-days meeting "AMM" in Ottawa, Ontario this past June. It was all business meetings and discussions. Some fun was proposed to favourize the networking amongst the invitees. See the fun picture here.

2023 April: This Annual General Meeting was combined with the elections of board members. We thank the new members to volunteer their time on the Board of Directors.  We are grateful for the members who are leaving the Board of Directions for all their valuable completed works.
