ACER-CART (Canadian Association of Retired Teachers)

I wish to thank Ed Zegray for the many years that he has represented QART on the ACER-CART directorship. I also wish to congratulate him on his recent appointment to the ACER-CART Executive. He is now an executive officer of ACER-CART as Regional Representative for Eastern Canada including Quebec and the Maritimes. Sadly this prevents Ed from representing us in particular

As President of QART, I will, by default, be QART's new representative at ACER-CART until such time as the QART Executive Committee names a new ACER-CART representative.

Ed will continue to represent us at the provincial level on the GTAR (Le Groupe de travail des associations de retraites).


QART has an email address
