About Us

UARA Board Book/draft

The UARA Organization

There are approximately 600+ UARA members as retirees from the University of Arizona. There is 15-member Board of Directors who engage in information sharing, topical discussions, and advice. An Executive committee, also part of the Board of Directors, is the decision-making group, composed of four officers and one past president. 

The Board meets monthly (excluding summer) at the Habitat for Humanity office. All UARA members are encouraged to attend. Besides the BOD members, meetings usually include committee chairs and liaison representatives of relevant campus organizations.
The UARA operates on the same fiscal year as the UA - July 1 to June 30. Renewal of dues requests are mailed in summer.

Dues:
$20.00 for one year;
$80.00 for five years;
$10.00 for one year for active employees within two years of retirement.

The purposes of the association are to (1) promote the interests and welfare of University of Arizona retirees and to (2) develop continuing contact between retirees and the University and to (3) provide the means for interaction among retirees through a diversity of cultural, intellectual, and social programs.

The UARA is an advocate for issues facing older people who are retired from the University of Ariona, as well as older people in general. It brings Arizona legislation updates and other items of critical information to the memberhship. The UARA is part of the Tri-Universitiy Retirees Assocation.

The UARA is a 501(c)(7) organization.
