 Dear Members,

We recently sent out a schedule of seminars regarding health insurance choices for retirement. We hope that these seminars are informative and beneficial to all those attending. We do however want to remind you to consider short term and long term impact of leaving the BSO insurance system as there is no turning back. 

Once you attend and glean all the information provided, if you are considering a change we would encourage you to get an objective second opinion. As most of you know one of our retirees' wife is in the insurance business and has counseled many of our retirees. She does not try to sell you anything but will give you complete and best information to make an informed decision.  Please feel free to call Liz Martorella, LUTCF, CLTC of A&A Insurance Services at her office 561-434-6534 or cell  954-290-3091.

Wishing you a healthy and prosperous retirement,
BSORA Executive Board

About BSORA
Our Association, granted IRS exemption under 501 (c) (3), was established as a not-for-profit organization.  Under guidelines set to allow for this, our objectives are: 1.    Promote the general welfare of our retirees. 2. Promote law enforcement, respect for authority and suppression of criminal activity. 3.  To assist in the development and implementation of crime prevention programs. 4.    To assist persons in need. 5.    To provide educational scholarships. 6.    To encourage tolerance of every kinds. 7.    To cooperate with civic organizations and promote such civic, charitable and educational undertakings as this Association shall deem proper. All honorably retired and DROP members of the Broward Sheriff's Office (BSO), regardless of sworn or civilian status, are eligible to become members, and they are more than welcome to do so.  There is no rank structure in being a retiree, and there are no structures within our organization. Being somewhat unique in having many of our members in different parts of the State and Country, the advent of electronic communication through the use of emails, etc., makes everyone only minutes away in one manner or another.  Committees will be necessary to form and require Chairmanship.  We will have many upcoming business/social meetings, to address the official needs of our members.  We would like to see as many that want to get involved, do so.  The BSORA can only be as strong and as noticed as you want it to be!!
   Become part of it and help make us grow into a professional, recognized association.
