Membership in Carleton University Retirees Association (CURA) is open to any retired Carleton employee. All retired employees are welcome, including former members of faculty, staff and managers.

Membership is also open to spouses or partners, even if they have not worked at Carleton, although they may not be eligible for all of the campus privileges that are available to former employees.

The association provides activities of interest to its members, a forum for informing them on issues of common interest and an opportunity to stay in touch with former colleagues and to stay abreast of developments at the university.

The annual fee is currently $30 per year and is valid for the academic year starting in September. Memberships can be purchased from the treasurer. Please contact Irwin Reichstein.
