Welcome to SLO RAM

San Luis Obispo Retired Active Men (SLO RAM) is a group of retirees that get together just for fun, fellowship and to enjoy programs which enhance the enjoyment, dignity and independence of retirement. For much of 2021 we met virtually using Zoom due to the COVID-19 restrictions. We were pleased to resume our in-person meetings on June 15, 2021, in accordance with State and local recommendations. 

Executive Committee Meetings

The Executive Committee of SLO RAM met on Tuesday, March 15th, at 9:30 AM. The minutes of the meeting can be accessed from the Executive Committee page of this website.

The next Executive Committee meeting is scheduled for July 19, 2022.  

On April 19th, the Executive Committee approved changes to the by-laws for SLO RAM. A vote by the membership will be held at the Luncheon on May 17th.  2/3 of those attending is needed to approve the new by-laws.

Comments on the Proposed By-Law Changes:

  • Language changed to incorporate SLO RAM as the name of the group.
  • Modified to show two SLO RAM activities: Luncheon and Coffee Cabinet. A SLO RAM Member may attend one or both of the activities.
  • Induction at a Luncheon or a Coffee Cabinet.
  • Change in requiring a minimum for attendance to remain a member to an expectation of attending Luncheon and/or Coffee Cabinet meetings 6 times during the calendar year.
  • Deleted references to a membership waiting list.
  • Changed to an email vote on future changes to by-laws from requiring a meeting in person.

Monthly Luncheons

The monthly Luncheons are held in the  Madonna Inn Garden Room.  They are held on the third Tuesday of the month. Check in starts at 11:00am and ends at 11:25am so the check-in team can be seated before the meeting starts. The meeting is called to order at 11:30am, concluding at 1:00pm. RAM Members and invited guests are welcome to attend.  Luncheon cost is $28.

The next Luncheon meeting will be on May 17th. The featured speaker will be Bill Woodson, Retired Electrical Utilities Executive and long-standing member of SLO RAM. Bill will discuss the Electrical Grid: Transmission of Non Carbon-Generated Electricity.

Status of In-Person Meetings

After a prolonged cancellation of our indoor meetings due to COVID-19 related restrictions, we are now back to our regular in-person meetings in the Garden Room at the Madonna Inn.  Monthly Luncheons are held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month and Coffee Cabinet is held weekly on Thursday mornings.  We are closely watching for, and following, State and local guidelines regarding indoor group meetings.
