A Message From Your EASL 3616 Retirees Chapter President


Welcome to the wonderful world of RETIREMENT. During this next step in your life you will be able to do some very amazing things and meet new friends. All you have to do is join the EASL 3616 Retirees Chapter.

By joining our local Retirees chapter you will be able to maintain your NEA, FEA, and AFT benefits that only members can use. We are actively involved with our State organization, FEA, Florida Education Association. Our retirees’ chapter gives back to our community by being involved to help others. We support Special Olympics, Tiger Cope, New Teacher Orientation, New Support personnel, and helping in the local office when needed. We will continue our project of the New Teacher Supply Depot - gently used and new supplies and manipulatives. If you have anything you would like to donate, please contact the union office or Barb Kaste at (772) 878-8493.

We also have a fun side, we take short fields trips, have “Dutch Treat Luncheon”, at local restaurants. We also have special speakers address us on different topics. We all have become family to each other and are enjoying our new friendships.

Our Union Dues are very reasonable; for one year your dues are $70.00 and this includes all of your benefits. Our fiscal year starts on July 1st through June 30th. All dues need to be paid by July 1st.  Click here for Retiree Application.

The Retirees Chapters meets once a month on the second Wednesday of the month at 11:00 a.m. Monthly emails will be sent out with location of meeting. We look forward to meeting you and have you as a new member. Hope to see you soon.

If you have any questions regarding our Retirees Chapter, you can reach me at (772) 878-8493 or email bekaste@aol.com or call the Union Office at (772) 464-6430.

The EASL 3616 Retiree Chapter is asking for your help to make our Annual Supply Depot for New Teachers a success. We need new or gently used donations that a new teacher could use to set up their classrooms. Items will be provided to new teachers free at the beginning of the school year.
