Who can join EKURA?
Membership in the EKURA is open to any full or part-time faculty and staff retiree of EKU. Spouses and partners of any living or deceased member are eligible for associate membership in EKURA.
There are two types of membership. EKU retirees may become lifetime members with a single fee of $120. $100 of that amount is designated for the scholarship fund, and is a tax deductible donation. Lifetime members do not pay any dues thereafter. Individuals may also become members on an annual basis for $10 per year. During the first year of retirement, however, all EKURA dues are waived.
Membership checks should be made out to EKURA and sent to Treasurer Pat Ridgely, 128 Buckwood, Richmond, KY 40475, or brought to any regularly scheduled meeting.
The leadership of the association, between meetings, is guided by a five member executive board that plans both the meetings, tours, awarding of scholarships, and communications, with the assistance of EKURA members.
