* While notices of luncheons are provided by email, and while the Newsletter is distributed electronically by email notification of its being posting on the website, those individuals who are members in good standing (current year dues paid or life members) may, upon request, receive US Mailed notices of luncheons and US Mailed copies of the Newsletter.

From its founding ARF has operated to provide effective service to ALL faculty retirees without regard to membership in ARF.  Upon being notified that the University of the retirement of a faculty member or EPA professional, that person immediately becomes eligible for membership and, if an email address is know for the individual, begins to receive timely notices of ARF programs and services.

 

All retired NCSU faculty and EPA Professionals and spouses are, however, welcomed and urged to support the Association by becoming members. Others who are not retirees of the University may be offered membership by action of the ARF Board.

 

The Association offers Annual Membership and Life Membership. 

 

Annual members are expected to pay dues annually by academic year, beginning in September of each calendar year. New Annual Members who join between January 1 and July 1 are considered members in good standing for the following academic year as well.

 

Those who chose life membership upon initially joining or who chose to upgrade from annual membership to life membership may do so by the one time payment of life membership dues.

 

Annual and Life Membership dues are set by the ARF Board.

 

Two methods for joining or renewing are provided:

 

  1. Print form, fill it out, and mail it with your check, or
  2. Fill out out online form, then mail check.
