Retiree Association Annual Meeting on May 16, 2018

Hernan Rosenberg represented AFSM in the 2018 IMF Retiree Association annual meeting on May 16.  In that meeting a good check list of information to be handy in case of incapacity or other events by members was presented.  It will be included in our forthcoming “Guide for Surviving Spouses and Partners”, but we thought you may wish to start incorporating information as soon as possible, based on bad experience of other members.  The "Guide for Advance Planning - IMFRA, April 2018" is available here and under “Documents Tag” in the AFSM Website.




The decision to celebrate the 2018 International Reunion on a ship cruising the Caribbean has received an enthusiastic reception from our colleagues and some have already registered for the cruise. If interested in sharing a few care-free and memorable days with your colleagues, we recommend that you make your reservation soon to ensure the cabin of your preference. Detailed information was provided in a March 11 e-mail to all members and is copied below.

Join us for a 4-night Caribbean cruise on the Carnival Victory, departing Miami, US at 4 PM on 5 November and returning to Miami, US at 8 AM on 9 November. We will have a morning in Key West, US and a full afternoon and evening at Cozumel, Mexico. The ship was refurbished in 2015 and has a theater, library, spa and fitness center. Prices range from USD373.05 (inside cabin), USD423.05 (ocean view), and USD513.05 (balcony) or USD697.05 (suite). Prices include all Taxes & Port Fees and Gratuities, as well as all meals. Rates are per person, double occupancy and are subject to change without notice.  A USD150.00 per person deposit (USD300.00 per cabin) will lock in your price and final payment is due by August, though registrations can be made up to one week before sailing depending upon availability. Single and triple rates are available upon request or if you plan to share a cabin but do not know who that person will be at time of registration, please email us before registering 

If you would like to join us, please sign up with your deposit now to assure the best price by going to Password: AFSM
