New Link

The link About Us in the left navigation bar gives a brief history of how the MSU Emeriti Association came into being. It includes a rationale for why it was important for a university like Montclair State to give official recognition to an Association of distinguished members of the academic community who contributed so much to the reputation the University now enjoys.

Membership Drive

Launching the new website comes at the same time that we begin our membership drive for new members (our new fiscal year begins September 1st). On the site you will find a link Join Us and we hope you will do just that in the very near future. As a final note, your assistance would be greatly appreciated in introducing the new website to your colleagues and to relevant listserves to which you belong.

Please forward this website announcement to others who might be interested in joining. Thanks very much. Join MSU Emeriti Association today.
