Part One ——— The Presenters


Dr. Nicholas C. Neupauer, President, Butler County Community College

Unretirement…The World Economic Forum recently discussed a new trend in the workforce — the rise of ‘unretirement.’ Those already eligible to claim pensions or 401Ks are returning to the workforce for various reasons. Dr. Neupauer, who himself recently announced his retirement as the long-time President of BC3, will discuss the rise of ‘unretirement’ and how it can help organizations and pensioners alike.

Andrew J. Tommelleo, Ed.D.

Retiring is never an easy decision, especially when you love what you are doing. However, there are always several factors that go into making that final decision. Coming to peace with your decision is ultimately what I believe is critical to making a patient, confident decision. Retiring “to something” was also great advice that I had received early in my career. What it is that you “retire” to is vastly different from what others may call retirement.

Mr. Robert Kwiat

I am a retired school administrator who retired at 30 years.  I chose to continue working and took a position as a financial advisor with Edward Jones in Neshannock Township New Castle.  I am excited to share with everyone my story regarding my early retirement and why I chose my new path.

How to protect your assets from the cost of long-term care and why it is important to have documents in place to prepare your family for the unexpected changes in their lives.


Part Two — — — The Fun Fair


A variety of organizations and businesses have been invited. They will have information about what they do and how you can get involved. Retirement is wonderful but you must keep active.

Instead of calling it a job fair this will probably be the first fun fair you have attended. You will have the opportunity to visit businesses and organizations who are here to offer you advice and information. They can become a resource for you in retirement.

My experience has been you may have done things when you were younger but now that you are retired you may have new questions about retirement. You are living in the present, but you need to plan for the future. If you do you will be more confident and content as you look forward.

Lunch is on your own—The BLT is one of my favorites!
