The Good and
Welfare Committee was established to send remembrances to dues paying members at
times of happiness or sorrow. This includes marriages, the birth or adoption of
a child, prolonged illness or hospitalization, or the death of a member,
immediate family member or significant other – as defined in the Contract.
In the case
of surgery or prolonged illness, or for the birth or adoption of a child,
flowers or plants can be sent to a member. In situations involving the death of
a member or a death in the family of a member, memorials can be sent.

contract; it includes: spouse, child, significant other, aunt/ uncle, father/
mother, sister/ brother, grandparent/ grandparent-in-law, grandchildren, niece/
nephew, or a person regarded as a member of the member’s immediate family). In
the event of members getting married, retiring, gaining U.S. citizenship, or for
a death in the family of a member or in the case of the death of a member, a
card can be sent to the family.
Please send all requests for remembrances to the co-chairs for the Good and Welfare Committee: Amanda Abell, 612-596-8946, (Mail Code L890) or Leah Hicks @ Leah.firstname.lastname@example.org.
