About Retiree's Association
The Clayton State
Retirees Association (CSRA) was organized in October 2002 as the result
of efforts by a small group of retirees who recognized the need for an
organization that would facilitate communication between the University
and its retirees.
The Planning Committee included Robert Bolander, Helen Brown, Peggy
Capell, Doris Cash, Sandra Missroon, Pat Perry, Winnie Thacker, and
Martha Wood. The group worked with Diane Burns and Bryan Edwards from
the Department of External Relations. The support extended by this
department was instrumental in the formation of the organization.
Since its inception, the association has acted as a vehicle of
communication between retirees and the Department of Human Resources
(HR) in efforts to streamline procedures involving retirees, to ensure
that retirees receive pertinent privileges given to current employees,
and to inform retirees of changes in benefits and privileges.
In representing the interests and welfare of retirees, the CSRA is
proactive in following matters related to retirees and in keeping
retirees informed. This is accomplished by disseminating information to
its members via meetings, newsletters, and emails. By keeping all
members informed of pertinent issues affecting retirees and receiving
feedback from its members, the CSRA is able to respond to issues and
hopefully exert influence on policy makers.
