The association was formed in winter 2015 by the President's Group Task Team and the Retired Staff Seed Group as part of the University's retiree engagement strategy. Its intention was to continue retiree relationships with the University and one another, and was created as an umbrella group for all categories of retired employees: faculty, staff, out-of-scope, and administration. On May 28, 2015, the Board of Governors approved the name “Retirees of MacEwan University” and on March 19, 2019, the structure was formalized with the approval of the bylaws by the association's Leadership Group.
Its objectives are:
a) To preserve and promote retirees’ connection and continuing association with the University and other retirees. Initiating educational, social and other events for this purpose. To develop and maintain platforms for communication with members.
b) To connect with new retirees regarding membership benefits, opportunities and support available through the Association.
c) To support the goals, priorities and initiatives of MacEwan University, while operating independently. To communicate information to the membership about the University.
d) Represent and communicate members’ interests and concerns to the University and other appropriate agencies concerning, but not limited to the benefits and services available to members.
