Register Now Online

All Purdue retirees are invited to join former colleagues and friends at the PURA Annual Kickoff Luncheon at Four Points by Sheraton on Monday, September 8, 2014.  The cost this year is only $15, a reduction from the past three years.  President Daniels will be the featured speaker and will bring us an update on campus initiatives and events.

Doors to the Grand Ballroom will open at 11:30 a.m.  The luncheon will begin at 12:00 noon. Attendees will be eligible to win door prizes given by local merchants.  Drawing for door prizes will start at 11:45 a.m.

In additon, PURA will begin a new exciting program at this luncheon, a “common read” of a Purdue University Press book that can be purchased at a reduced price immediately after the luncheon and will be discussed by PURA readers at a later date.  The first book selected for this momentous occasion is Angie Klink's The Deans’ Bible: Five Purdue Women and Their Quest for Equality. Copies will be available to PURA attendees and their guests at the fall luncheon for $20.00, a 1/3 reduction of the book's regular price.

Registration for the Kickoff Luncheon will be handled through the Division of Conferences and can be paid with credit card through the online web site www.conf.purdue.edu/pura
All reservations must be received no later than Friday, August 22, 2014.

See you at the Kickoff!
