LMonthly Meetings
ocal retirees are invited to attend monthly meetings where they can discuss important issues affecting them in their golden years.
The Brisbane north branch of the Association of Independent Retirees (AIR) is a not-for-profit seniors’ volunteer organisation that meets on the third Thursday of each month at Geebung RSL.
Branch president Ron Bennetts said the committee had put in a big effort to make the meetings interesting.
“The guest speakers are informative and entertaining, and discuss matters affecting fully and partly self-funded retirees, such as financial, legal, over 50s resorts, emergency services, funeral directors, health professionals, scam prevention, travel, insurance, and gardening,” Ron said.
A Hogarth Law representative will attend the June meeting to discuss advance health directives, enduring power of attorney, and wills.
Ron said the benefits for retirees to attend meetings included being proactive in their retirement, staying abreast of issues that affect their lifestyle, and staying positive, especially during the pandemic.
“Being part of a national organisation enables our advocacy unit to make submissions to all levels of government,” Ron said.
“Our committee also organises social functions twice a year with the aim of keeping the group socially engaged.”
Membership is $32 for a single or $48 for a couple, each financial year. Prospective members may attend one meeting as a visitor before joining.
