To our newest retirees, Congratulations! You will be receiving a letter in Sept. asking if you would like to join the NBFT Retirees group. There is a small fee so you can receive all the Spotlights throughout the year. There will also be an invitation to our Fall luncheon. We get together traditionally in the fall, during the Christmas season and in the spring. We hope you will consider joining us. Believe me, you won't feel retired until August comes and you don't have to attend convocation or professional development. You also won't have to set up a classroom. Enjoy your summer and hopefully we will see you at our first get-together in the fall.

Retirees please forward any information you would like added to Joan Cromwell at the NBFT Headquarters (See below for contact information).

Please Report Name Changes!

If you have been hired at any point in the school year or have had a recent name change, you are asked to contact CSDNB Human Resources and NBFT Recording Secretary, Basia Maselek at so that the Union rolls are correct. This is important information that must be shared with AFT National to correctly calculate local, state and national dues. Thank you!

It's your Spotlight
