Welcome to the Web Site of the Purdue University Retirees Association
Whether you are a Purdue retiree, the spouse of a retiree, or just a visitor to our Web site, we hope you will take a few moments to explore it and learn about our organization, its structure, and its activities.
Of approximately 4,700 Purdue retirees, two-thirds have remained in the Greater Lafayette area to maintain their close ties with the University, their friends and the community.
Some have moved on to other locations on a permanent basis; still others go elsewhere during the winter, but return each spring to reconnect with their Purdue colleagues and friends.
Wherever they are, they can maintain active contact with us through this Web site and the links it provides to information about PURA and its activities.
Greetings from Our PURA President
Welcome to an exciting 2013-14! Over the summer your PURA committees have been busy planning activities and outings, with more in preparation. Over 300 retirees assembled at the Kickoff Luncheon to hear Purdue’s new President Mitch Daniels discuss his vision for the future. A full lineup of speakers is on tap for our monthly MCL luncheons. The Benefits Committee will soon announce a favorable result to their negotiations for the Medicare supplement programs. And trips and outings are on schedule throughout the year. There are new things, too: the PURA endowment fund is sponsoring two conferences on topics vital to retired staff, and other new initiatives are under consideration for the next year. All of these activities are planned and organized by your fellow retirees, so this is a good time to get involved by joining one of our committees.
I urge you to check out the outstanding PURA web page, http://www.purdue.edu/retirees/. It’s the place to find comprehensive and late-breaking news of interest to all retired Purdue staff. The next year shapes up as the best yet for Purdue retirees. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
