Welcome to the University of Saskatchewan Retirees Association web site.

It has been an exciting and busy summer for the USRA Board. In June we found out that the U of S Non-Academic Retirees Association (USNARA) was having difficulty filling positions on its board and was considering dissolving the organization. The USRA proposed to the USNARA that we explore merging the organizations so that any retiree from the U of S would have an organization to which they could belong. The USNARA accepted our proposal. All members of USRA and USNARA received a letter in early July asking for opinions about a merger; responses from members of both organizations were uniformly in favour.

Board members from both organizations have spent many hours preparing a proposal for a merger that is to be presented to the memberships of both organizations at September general meetings. The USRA AGM is September 25.

The August issue of the USRA newsletter, which has been sent to all members of both organizations, explains the merger work in more detail and notes the changes that are required in the USRA constitution and bylaws to allow current USNARA members and retirees who formerly would have joined USNARA to be full members of USRA. An introduction to USNARA is also presented, interesting reading about our sister organization.
