The Retirees Association offers a wide variety of programs for fun and information, enabling staff retirees to maintain old and develop new friendships. The association keeps abreast of changes to retiree benefits and sends representatives to attend meetings of the system-wide Council of University of California Retiree Associations (CUCRA), the voice of UC Retirees in continuing dialogue with UC leadership.
As a retiree of UCSB, you have provided priceless service to our campus during the course of your employment. The Retiree Association in turn would like to be of service to you. The following features of the Retiree Association are provided to all members:
- Interaction among retirees through a diversity of programs
- Enjoyment of new, continued, and renewed friendships among its members
- Assist members in understanding U.C. benefits available to them
- Social activities
Retiree Association Breakfast Meetings

The Annual Holiday Luncheon is held at the Elk's Lodge where retirees are encouraged to bring gifts for less fortunate children within our community. The food is always great, and with holiday music in the background a fun social hour is enjoyed before lunch is served. The Chancellor and Mrs. Yang are frequent attendees to this annual event.
The Annual Members Summer BBQ in June is a fun event that includes a raffle. We will present an overview of the year past, and conduct an election and vote of Association officers.
The Retirees' Association provides scholarships of $1,000 and $175 annually - thanks to membership dues - each presented to a deserving student in the Santa Barbara area. We hope, with your continued membership support, to offer these scholarships every year.
