In the fall of 1995 the concept of strong relationships between CH2M HILL and its retirees began a process that would benefit all concerned. With the full support of Ralph Peterson, the then CEO of CH2M HILL, the first retiree newsletter was issued April 1996. Ken Stuart and CH2M founder, Jim Howland, became the first volunteer co-editors. Their stated mission was "The mission of our retiree group is to foster strong positive relations between the firm and the retirees [then about 275], and to tap this retiree resource (PDF, 537KB) to the benefit of all."
Subsequently on August 10, 2006, some ten years and 18 newsletters later, co-editors Jim Howland and C.Y. Sheih announced that Gordon Koblitz, then a pending retiree from DFW, had "volunteered" (PDF, 296KB) to take over this task. As in the first decade, the Retiree / Alumni Newsletters have continued to receive great support from the retirees and alumni and from CH2M HILL. Most importantly, the 1996 mission statement has today become even stronger and well supported!
