The voice of retirees

Stella Tickle writes.

I retired some years ago but have maintained my BPS membership. I continue to find articles and letters interesting – perhaps more so now that time and energy allows a wider focus on the discipline – but my involvement is limited to The Psychologist especially now that Covid restrictions prevent face-to-face conferences.

Could ‘the retired’ have more of a voice within The Psychologist and outside? For example, with articles dealing with planning for retirement [Editor’s note: Do see tinyurl.com/psychmagretire], how lives have changed since giving up work and perhaps how one can ‘keep a hand in’. More importantly I wonder whether a sub-group or network for retirees can be formed to get together – virtually, face-to-face and/or through The Psychologist.

There may be others who would be interested in such activity and it would represent a further incentive to continue membership after professional life has ceased.
