DEAR BOARD SEEKING INDIVIDUALS TO SERVE
The DEAR Board is made up of retirees from DTE– our Bylaws allow from 7 to 15 seated directors and we currently have 11 seated directors. Traditionally, we have operated with 12-14 members; we are seeking to fill at least 2 seats. As a point of clarification, DTE retirees refers to retirees from DTE Energy and its affiliates. There is no required time in retirement to qualify – we seek to have members who were represented employees and those who were not and those who retired recently as well as
those who retired ‘a while’ ago.
The main focus of DEAR as an organization is protecting our benefits (in particular health care and pension) and communicating with DTE retirees about proposed changes at DTE or changes in State or National legislation which could negatively or positively impact us in the future. Board members work to maintain a positive relationship with DTE management to stay informed about
and involved in potential changes.
The DEAR Board is looking for engaged individuals to serve on the board. We meet 3 or 4 times a year for about one hour and have virtual capabilities, so living local is not a requirement. If you are interested in learning more and have a spare 20 hours in your year, please contact Karen Mitchell (firstname.lastname@example.org 313-605-6368) or Kathy Williams (email@example.com
248-464-9910). We think it is a worthwhile use of our time and hope you do to!
