Zoom "Join from anywhere"

10:00 am to 12 noon


I extend a sincere invitation to join us at any meeting. We welcome your participation, and would love to connect with you! Our meetings are warm, casual, and open to all westside retirees and their spouses. We meet at Biscuit's Cafe, 19420 N. 59th Ave. Glendale, AZ 85308.  

Whether you are a public school employee who worked on the west side or who lives on the west side, we'd like to see you at our meetings.

We meet 4 times each year.


2021 -2022 meeting dates:   

  • Thursday, October 7, 2021

  • Thursday, December 2, 2021

  • Thursday, February 3, 2022

  • Thursday, April 7, 2022


  • Meetings are casual with a guest speaker discussing pertinent issues concerning AEA retirees or retirement in general.

  • At some meetings we have an update on the impact of political activity on state and national levels that might affect education.

  • A guest may speak about how retirees could become involved with a specific program.


After our guest, the meeting usually follows a set agenda; minutes, treasurer's report, updates from members involved in local, state, and national association events. We conclude.

We have a wonderful time socializing.  Please join us!
