Welcome

Welcome to the Association of Retired Academics at Laurentian University’s (ARALU) new website.

We trust that this site, developed and maintained by ARALU’s Webmaster, Kaitlynn Anderson-Butcher, will permit ARALU to communicate with its members in a more timely and efficient manner. As a member, you will be able to receive up-to-date invitations to the Association’s events such as the date, time and location of its monthly luncheons, information on occasional invited speakers,and the Annual General Meeting. You will also be able to consult the minutes of the regular Board meetings, as well as approved minutes of the AGM, in order to be informed about the Association’s current activities.

The website will also provide information on ARALU’s brief history, such as its date of foundation as LUFA-R, and its past presidents. It will contain the names and email addresses of the current Board members, should you wish to communicate with any and/or all of them, concerning matters of interest to you. The Association’s recently amended constitution and its Directory/Handbook, which provides essential information about its members, as well as an online form which will enable you to send us changes to your email and/or postal address and telephone number, will also be added to the site.

We hope and trust that you will find this new communication tool helpful. Should you wish to comment on its current and future contents, or provide us with suggestions on its improvement, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Donald Dennie

President
