Local Unit Leadership Information
Free Local Unit Letters
Each year AERA offers to every local unit a “free local unit letter” mailing. AERA Executive Secretary, Janice Charlesworth stated, “You would be surprised how many local units do not take advantage of this offer.” In the past, local unit leaders have reported a positive response to their letter. The letter crafted by the local unit is prepared, copied and mailed (bulk mail) to every retiree from a specific county or school district. This letter helps to recruit new members and to keep all education retirees informed. To assist new local unit presidents who are not sure what to include in their letter, a sample letter is in the PDF below.
