RPA Designation Ceremony

Remember back in March when I was granted the Retirement Plans Associate (RPA) designation through the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans?

There were about 50 of us who received the CEBS, CMS, GBA and RPA designations in December 2008 and June 2009 from the Toronto area at the conferment ceremony and reception today.

Lunch was good ... mixed greens salad, chicken and rice, and a small chocolate cake, plus some wine.

There were three speeches before each of us was called up to receive a handshake and a gift, while a photographer took pix.

Then he did a group shot of each of the designees. Here's the RPA group, with me at the right.

Here's the gift they gave us ... a holder for our business cards.

Kudos to YOU ;--)
Thanks for helping me celebrate my 2nd Blogoversary at Small Reflections. Today is my 2nd Blogoversary at Sacred Ruminations. I’ve written a bit of Haiku and a created a multi-mosaic of skies I've shared previously. I hope you'll drop by as time permits to help me celebrate. Hope you have a lovely weekend.
Hugs and blessings,

Ah ... I just logged into Sacred Ruminations and discovered you've already been there. Thanks so much for dropping by. If you've not been to HRG, I'm sharing an award with all visitors in my T-13 at Happily Retired Gal this week. Hope you'll drop by when time permits to snag, enjoy, and pass it along to others.
