District Community Connections

Connect here with other NCRGEA Members!

Mission: To advance, promote, and protect the benefits, interests, and well-being of North Carolina’s retired state and local public servants.

Vision: The voice and go-to resource for North Carolina’s retired public servants.

NCRGEA District Community Connections  are all about you and your quality of life in retirement.  We are reaching out into communities across North Carolina to ensure you are living your best life in retirement.  We are asking that you join our Community Advisory Boards (CAB) so that your voice can be heard around topics and activities of interest to you!   

The District Community Connections webpage will be updated to ensure you are aware of what is available in your respective district and others.  

The NCRGEA is divided into nine districts across the state and will have CABs in every district.  The CABs offer you an opportunity to tell us how you want to be engaged and to discuss topics that are of importance to you in retirement.

For 2021-2022, the three projects across all districts are:

1) Health and Wellness and the Senior Centers
2) Advocacy Training
3) “Welcome to Retirement” initiative

Each district will adjust the activities specific to your geographical and informational needs.   Your NCRGEA is for you! So, get involved and engage with fellow retirees for your best life!

If you are interested in participating in your local district CAB, please complete this survey.

HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR DISTRICT, please email Deryl Davis Fulmer, NCRGEA Community Liaison at deryl@ncrgea.com or call 919-980-6681.

Ruth Bishop 7.21 Trivia Winner
I am RUTH BISHOP and I retired from Forsyth County Schools in 1986 after being there 13 years. I was a teacher’s aide, most of the time in kindergarten. I liked working with the children and it was nice in later years to meet grown-up students or their parents and reminisce. Being a member of NCRGEA and receiving the newsletter keeps me informed about current events that affect seniors; and having reached the ripe old age of 90, my dues are paid. Retirement life is good!

Joyce Poplin 3.21 Triva Winner
JOYCE POPLIN of Nebo retired from McDowell County Schools in 2017 where she taught and was a principal. Joyce has a daughter who is a community college instructor, and she and her husband have two children.

To Joyce, “NCRGEA is a great organization” and our newsletters are informative. “I like to keep up with current legislative actions and as a retired employee, I need to know someone is lobbying for the benefit of retired government employees.” The best thing about retirement is being able to help with her grandchildren, whether she is needed or not.
