International Police Association United States Section – by Jim Sanfillippo
I am a long time member of the International Police Association and have made many friends throughout the world. I know that several of our members (Emerald Society, MRPA, and the Pipe Band) are also members. I believe this to be a great way to make contact and network not only here in the US but across the world.
The Milwaukee Retired Association- (MRA)- by Wray Young
This organization incorporated in 1960, is comprised of over 2,000 members of retired workers, any retiree who worked in any capacity for the City of Milwaukee. It’s principal goals now are to work with the City in order to improve and safeguard our health and pension benefits. They have even set up a pension defense fund, now at over $75,000. in case our pension, our “lifeblood”, is threatened in anyway. This has been occurring in numerous cities all over the country, with retiree’s health benefits and pensions being cut due to poor city fiscal management. It is in all of our best interest to join this organization as there is strength in numbers. The MRA is no longer affiliated with AFSCME in any way, but is currently working to form an affiliation with the Milwaukee Area Labor Council AFL-CIO. I have been a member since I retired in 2000 and have found it to be an excellent & very well run organization working hard for us retirees, and highly encourage all Milwaukee retirees to join.
