May 2017 General Meeting

Please join us at our
Club meeting Sunday, May 21, 3 PM-5 PM

The Center for Spiritual Living
4845 Dunsmore Ave. (at Santa Carlotta), La Crescenta
Plenty of parking in the lot, accessed on Dunsmore or El Caminito.
We meet in Chafee Hall.

Hear Guest Speaker Rick Wartzman on
The Rise and Fall of Good Jobs in America”
Big businesses once took responsibility for providing their workers and retirees with an array of social benefits. At the height of the post-World War II economy, these companies also believed that worker pay needed to be kept high in order to preserve morale and keep the economy humming. Productivity boomed. But the corporate social contract didn’t last.

The Drucker Institute’s Rick Wartzman, the author of a new book on the subject, explores the forces that changed work in America–and helped lead to the rise of Donald Trump.

Members will vote:

Our Board voted to spend $500 in “Flipping the 6th District,” Georgia’s Congressional Seat, with a special election to replace Tom Price, now Secretary of Health & Human Services. The membership will vote whether to make this donation and if it would all go to the campaign of Jon Ossoff or be divided with part to the Georgia Democratic Party.

Reports from our Action Teams
Teams will report on what they have planned or accomplished.

Topic: “Trump and DeVos, What is Going to Happen to Education?”

What can we expect?

Plenty of parking in the lot, accessed on Dunsmore or El Caminito.
