SilverJackets: An expanded community

Silver Jackets is a Georgia Tech retiree organization that was spearheaded by Maureen Glass in 2007. This organization is for all retirees (i.e., including but not exclusive to academic faculty) and holds monthly meetings during Spring and Fall semesters, where presentations of interest to retirees are provided. For example, during the Fall they normally review benefits options so retirees can decide whether they should consider changing their benefits during the open enrollment period. In addition to the monthly meetings, Silver Jackets also assist with blood drives and participate in volunteer activities around the state.
