2013 Fall Picnic

The Retirees Association holds at least four social events each year, along with seminars, tours and other opportunities for retirees. Upcoming events are listed below. Links to descriptions of past events are listed on the left side of this page.        



October 28, 2015, 10am-11:30am. Back by popular demand! This is the second time our group has had the opportunity to tour the Boardwalk in our own private group. Space is limited so you must register in advance if you'd like to attend.


Saturday, November 7, 2015 10am-4pm at the Santa Cruz County Veterans Memorial Building. Buy unique, handcrafted gifts and help fund scholarships for UCSC's military veterans at a holiday craft fair co-sponsored by the UCSC Retirees Association and the VFW Post 5888. More information will be posted soon. If you are interested in participating, contact Nancy Moore, or read our "Call For Artists." An application for artists and vendors may be downloaded and mailed in.

Promoting the Retirees Association on Campus

The Association’s board is taking steps to promote our programs and activities among current campus staff and faculty. A liaison relationship has been established with the Staff Advisory Board, which represents all career staff employees. 


Issues arise from time to time that have implications for both active employees and retirees, and this formalized connection will provide a means for both organizations to coordinate their responses to such matters as changes in health care benefits.

In November, the Retirees and Emeriti Associations co-coordinate a special open enrollment forum with the Health Care Facilitator designed to answer questions specific to retirees' health care options and concerns.  In addition, in March a panel of retirees participated in a pre-retirement workshop sponsored by the Benefits Office. This is an important outreach effort that helps current employees plan for and realize their dreams for retirement.
