A look at the list of current and new members is a trip down memory lane. There are so many of us who worked together for many years in support of our students, departments, programs, and administrative services. There are many shared values and interests at this point in our lives.

Retirement has many different meanings for each of us. Retirement in 2023 can mean new active involvement, such as part-time or full-time work in the same profession or taking on new roles. Our activities can include volunteering, relaxing, and developing our own path.

AUAR is a wonderful meeting ground to engage in shared activity with new and old colleagues. There is a long tradition of monthly meetings with speakers and programs. There are group trips and volunteer opportunities. Planning new programs and new activities to broaden the organization are some of our current goals. Please join us for fun and frolic.

My best,
