At all our meetings we encourage representatives to bring guests. It is a great opportunity for giving future representatives, alternates and interested individuals a first-hand look at how ICSEW helps better the lives of state employees.

We have secured outstanding speakers to engage with us:

  • Retirement Planning-Catherine Cadoo

Catherine has worked for the Department of Retirement Systems (DRS) for four years in the employee and outreach program. She will be speaking to us about PERS 2, 3, and the Deferred Compensation Program (DCP).

  • Rebuilding Together Thurston County-Cathy Johnson

Cathy has been a volunteer with Rebuilding Together Thurston County (RTTC) for six years and is currently the president on the Board of Directors.  RTTC has provided free critical home repairs and handicap modifications for low income homeowners since 2004.  RTTC does everything from repairing and replacing hot water tanks and furnaces to installing grab bars and wheelchair ramps to replacing worn and trip hazard floor covering (falls are the number one reason for hospital visits by people 65 and older) to plumbing repairs, and much more.  We help over 30 homeowners a year with our much needed free services.  Cathy’s hope is to inform you about our critical work and how you too can make a difference, whether it is volunteering for Rebuilding Together or another worthy organization in the community.
