Membership Information and Forms

The Association of Bishopís University Retirees was formed on February 25th, 2009. The primary objective of the Association is to promote and to defend the financial interests of its members and in particular to represent their interests in all matters relating to pensions and benefits. In addition, we hope to host events at which retirees may come together socially to share common interests and ideas.

The first Annual General Meeting of the Association took place on April 30th, 2009, with approximately 35 people in attendance. At that meeting, the Associationís founding Executive Committee was formally confirmed, consisting of: Curt Rose (President), Sandra Gallup (Vice-President), Terry Skeats (Treasurer), Robert MacGregor (Secretary), Dieter Riegel and Stan Groves.

All retirees of the University, their spouses or beneficiaries, and employees within one year of retirement, are eligible to become members upon payment of a one-time only entrance fee of $1.00 per person, and an annual membership fee (at the present time, $15.00 per retiree, with a $1.00 fee for spouses who are not themselves retirees but who wish to become members). Your membership fees will help us to create a fund to assist with such objectives as:

  1. The design and operation of the Associationís website;
  2. Mailing costs involved in maintaining contact with long-distance retirees;
  3. The Associationís membership in CURAC, the College and University Retirees Association of Canada, an umbrella group which brings together approximately 40 organizations like ours across the country, and provides a means by which information and services can be easily shared.
