Welcome Members!

Spring has come and we look forward to warmer days ahead!

It has been almost three years since our last newsletter. We hope that now things are going back to our new normal that we will be able to put them out at least quarterly. Please see the attached newsletter. 

Here are some snapshots of what you'll find in the newsletter: 

  1. Executive network officer (ENO) reports
  2. Welcome to RetNIG's first student – Sarah Elkhalifa
  3. Call out for election positions: we need a chair-elect and a social media ENO. If you decide you would like to help us, rest assured you will be well mentored into the role. Please help us keep this interest group thriving. Questions? Email us at 
  4. Tuesday, May 9 Zoom meetup - topic is "Packing Tips for Light Travel" with Sonya Heath – stay tuned for more info

And other events to look forward to:

  1. June cruise planning in Kingston, Ont. (only if there is enough interest): We're trying to plan a  three hour sunset dinner cruise up the St. Lawrence River on Saturday, June 17 starting at 6:30 p.m. Make it a weekend and bring a friend or two - if there is enough interest, we might be able to get a deal on hotel rooms! If you're interested, email us at
