Emeritus/Retired Members Section

Emeritus/Retired Members Section logo


The Emeritus/Retired Members Section (E/RMS) promotes research and other activities related to the common interests of emeritus/retired members and all other members of the NCA. We serve as an advocate for the concerns of emeritus/retired members and all others who are nearing retirement.  We seek avenues of communication between our section and other NCA units in order to gather and disseminate information bearing upon shared concerns and interests. E/RMS has established interdisciplinary research exchanges with a host of other NCA units and invites the submission of thematic and/or discussion panels as well as research presentations for competitive review. We publish a bi-annual newsletter titled The Reminder. We also focus upon building a section membership base that deals with important, ongoing issues of "retirement," which are becoming increasingly complex and often confusing for many. Hence, E/RMS seeks to enlist NCA members and especially those over the age of 50, particularly those presently nearing or contemplating retirement.  If our research interests and/or retirement issues are of concern to you, please select the Emeritus/Retired Members Section as one of your interest groups when renewing your NCA membership.
