Welcome to the Brock University Retirees’ Association web site. Our membership comprises a cross-section of retired Brock University employees who enjoy meeting their colleagues at a variety of organized social events. BURA activities are managed by an annually elected executive team of BURA volunteers. Our activities are supported by member fees and the University through the Office of Alumni & Donor Relations.
Each social year, we offer a number of events between September and June. These events are customarily hosted at various Niagara venues and often include a speaker presentation or musical entertainment from members of Brock’s larger community of faculty, staff, and former students. Two seasonal celebrations such as a festive event in December and a celebratory gathering in June are usually held, as well as other ad hoc activities. In addition, BURA members are invited to join our coffee clubs, which are casual get-togethers to meet with friends and share in good conversation. When physical distancing is the healthiest option, BURA delivers these events to its members by Zoom. Please check the tips set out in BURA’s September Newsletter for joining our Zoom events. Be sure to keep an eye on our newsletters and this website, as we roll out the list of upcoming activities.
For prospective members, please visit the News & Events tab on this site for past and upcoming activities. And, should you decide to join us, please click on the Join Us icon to locate our New Member Registration Form and other membership details including the price of the initial year of membership – a very reasonable price indeed!
We are always happy to receive comments and suggestions from our members, and we encourage you to let your Brock colleagues know about BURA. You may reach out to any member of the Executive (listed under the Contact Us tab) with your questions, comments, or suggestions. We hope we’ll see you at our next event!
