If you’ve ever wanted to quiz a member of CalPERS, the state’s public employee retirement fund administrator, mark Nov. 14 on your calendar/
J.J. Jelincic, one of two recently re-elected members of that board, will be the guest speaker during a luncheon hosted by the Yolo County chapter of the Retired Public Employees’ Association of California.
The public is invited to attend the luncheon, featuring a Thanksgiving theme, slated to begin at 11:30 a.m. at Cracciolo’s Banquet Room, 1320 E. Main St. in Woodland. The cost to nonmembers is $15, and all reservations are due by Friday, Nov. 8, to Elizabeth Kemper at 530-666-4059.
This is the one annual free luncheon for members and their spouses; thus, a donation of nonperishable food for a local food closet will be collected at the door.
Jelincic’s background runs the gamut from garbage collector to investment analyst. He has an MBA degree in finance and has been deeply involved as a union activist throughout his career, first with Teamsters Local 70 and continuing through the CSEA civil service division, now known as SEIU Local 1000.
Other matters on the agenda include nomination of candidates for the February board of directors election. Following a short business session, the 50-50 drawing, raffle for prizes and awarding of the door prize will conclude the afternoon.
Anyone with questions may call Jill Brooks at 530-668-9522 or Floyd Kemper at 530-666-4059. RPEA is the only statewide group serving retired and current state employees and those of county, city, special district and classified school districts that contract with CalPERS for employee retirement benefits.
