All retirees from Memorial University, and their surviving principal beneficiaries, are automatically members of the MUN Pensioners Association. MUNPA’s role is to advocate on behalf of our members, provide social networking opportunities, social events, and keep our membership informed through email, our newsletter, Your Voice, our website, www.mun.ca/munpa and our Facebook MUNPA Group
Funding for these services comes from membership fees of our supporting members. MUNPA's bylaws (Article 8.1) provide for a voluntary, modest, annual membership fee to be set by members at a general meeting (as of June 2012, $2.00 per month or $24.00 annually).
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 and allows us to produce, Your Voice, on a regular basis.
Please consider becoming an active MUNPA supporter so that we can maintain the full slate of MUNPA services currently available.
PAYING MUNPA MEMBERSHIP FEES
Membership fees may be paid monthly or annually.
MONTHLY PAYMENTS: Monthly payroll deduction is the preferred option for payment. You can get a deduction form from MUN Human Resources, the MUNPA office, or get a copy of the form here. A second option is to send MUN HR an email with a request to pay MUNPA membership fees by automatic monthly payroll deduction. To begin paying the membership fee through payroll deduction, please copy the following text to an email, fill in your information and send to Human Resources at email@example.com and copy to MUNPA at firstname.lastname@example.org
