Hartford.  At 10:45 a.m. President Timothy Killeen welcomed everyone to the first
meeting of academic year 2011-12 and thanked Cecilia Welna for arranging to have

At 11:45, President Killeen called the business meeting to order.  He began the meeting
with a moment of silence for three long-time members of the Emeritus Assembly who

Secretary Jane Knox distributed the minutes of the May 10, 2011 meeting. The minutes
were accepted unanimously.  Treasurer Richard Wurst presented the Treasurer’s
Report.  He reported that the Assembly’s current balance reflects membership
payments by several new members and the fact that most members are now paying their
dues in the fall according to the recently approved schedule.  The treasurer’s report
was accepted unanimously.

President Killeen thanked Cecilia Welna and Morton Tenzer for arranging the fall 2011

Twenty members and guests of the Emeritus Assembly met on Tuesday, November 15,
2011 in Room 1A of the State Legislative Office Building in Hartford.  The planned topic
for the meeting was “The State Financial Crisis and its Implications for Retirees�,
but the originally scheduled speaker, Ed Marth, retiring Director of the UConn AAUP,
was unable to be at the meeting.  Morton Tenzer introduced Steve Greatorex, the CSU
AAUP Business Manager, who with very little notice agreed to speak about the recently
negotiated healthcare benefits for state workers and more specifically for state retirees.  
Steve was an organizer for the AAUP’s campaign to serve as the collective bargaining
agent for the State University System and the University of Connecticut in the mid 1970â
€™s, and he has been active in state employee bargaining issues since then.  He gave an
enlightening overview of healthcare options available to state workers and retirees.

At 12:25 p.m., President Timothy Killeen opened the business meeting.  Secretary Jane
Knox distributed the minutes of the October 20, 2011 meeting, which were approved
unanimously with the correction that Congressman Joe Courtney received the Henry T.
Yost Congressional Recognition Award at the AAUP Office in Storrs on October 21, 2011
at 3:00 p.m. and not 4:00 p.m.

Treasurer Richard Wurst distributed the Treasurer’s Report.  Dick reported that he
had not yet received the final bill from the University of Hartford for lunch at the October
20, 2011 meeting.  Acceptance of the report was unanimously approved as presented.  
Dick brought up the question of whether the EA should be paying sales tax, and Morton
Tenzer agreed to speak with Flo Thatcher to see if the Emeritus Assembly is eligible to
use the tax-exempt number of the AAUP State Conference.  Tim Killeen asked Dick to
provide him with a list of paid up members of the Emeritus Assembly.

Tim announced plans for the spring 2012 meetings.  Dick Wurst agreed to organize a
meeting at the Ballard Museum of Puppetry on the UConn Depot Campus.  A possible
second meeting is a visit to the Wyeth exhibit at Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford in the
late spring.  Tim proposed that planning be done by email rather than by an in-person
executive committee meeting over the winter due to scheduling difficulties.

Tim announced that he does not plan to continue as President after his current term is
completed.  Morton Tenzer will put together a nominating committee to determine
candidates for the election of President and Vice President.

The meeting was adjourned at 12:33 p.m.  Most attendees subsequently met in the
building cafeteria for lunch.
