Retirement by Design

Retirement by Design
A discussion with retirement mentor, coach and author Ida Abbott ’69
Tuesday, March 21 – 7pm CST
On Zoom*

At our last annual meeting, several members expressed interest in an event focused on retirement. Of course, there is a Smithie who is an expert on the subject!

Please join an online discussion about how to create a happy and purposeful future in retirement. Our speaker will be Ida Abbott ’69. Ida is a retirement mentor and coach, and author of the workbook Retirement by Design. We would encourage you to purchase and review the workbook before the session, but you’re welcome to join regardless. The workbook applies the five principles of design thinking to revolutionize the retirement-planning process.

Please RSVP to Liz Buckingham at if you plan to attend. *Liz will send you the Zoom link and passcode. If there are specific areas you would like Ida to address (other than financial planning, which is not a subject of focus for the book), please let Liz know.

Also, if there is enough interest, we can form a group to work our way through the book together.
