The Memorial University of Newfoundland
Pensioners' Association (MUNPA) is a non-profit organization that represents the interests of all retired faculty, staff and their surviving principal beneficiaries and dependant orphans.
Who Can Attend Activities: All activities are open to all members. You are always welcome to bring along your spouse, partner or guest. Most events are held at no cost. Where a paid ticket is required, the event notice will clearly state details. Principal Beneficiaries, who are the surviving spouses/partners of deceased retirees, become MUNPA members in their own right, and are therefore welcome at all MUNPA activities.

What MUNPA Does
MUNPA advocates for its members through membership on the University Pensions and Benefits committees, and membership in the College and University Retiree Associations of Canada (CURAC). It maintains an ongoing relationship with administrative offices on campus, serving as your voice on issues of importance. Our administrative office is there to take member calls and emails, process correspondence and mail, and provide support to the MUNPA Board of Directors as needed. It is staffed on a part-time basis.
Please consider becoming an active MUNPA supporter - a great bargain at only $2 per month. This fee enables us to cover the costs of our talks, group activities, socials, and Annual General Meeting. It also covers the staffing costs in our administrative office. This is not a compulsory fee for members, but without it we cannot maintain the full slate of no-cost MUNPA services currently available.
Payroll deduction is the preferred option for payment. You can get a deduction form from Human Resources or the MUNPA office. Payment by check to MUNPA is also available on an annual option.
Ongoing Maintenance: The MUNPA Website
MUNPA continues to work on updating its website to give you easier access to up-to-date information on what we are doing and events we are organizing, as well as to links to other sites that our members find useful. We strive to make more information readily available, while using fewer and shorter e-mails. As always, we welcome comments and suggestions on how to make the site more useful to you! Please send suggestions either to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
