The Bowling Green State University Retirees Association (BGSURA) collection consists of proceedings, subject files, newsletters and photographs from this organization. The donation and transfer of these records to the Center for Archival Collections was arranged in approximately 1998 with continual additions to the present time. No restrictions exist on the use of this collection and duplication is permitted for the purposes of preservation and research. The register was completed by Stephen W. Badenhop, Archival Assistant, in September 2008.
The Bowling Green State University Retirees Association (BGSURA) was organized in June 1995. The purpose of the group was varied, as they sought to deepen the friendships and associations of former faculty and staff through recreational and community activities, continue and foster a close liaison with Bowling Green State University for the general welfare and mutual benefits of each other, safeguard their members pension plans and convey care for each other. Membership was opened to all full-time and part-time faculty and staff who have worked at the University for at least five years. The body is governed by a board of twelve directors. The board in turn elects a president, vice president and secretary with an appointed newsletter editor and archivist/historian. There are also eight standing committees that serve the organization consisting of executive, nominating, program, activities, professional, by-laws, membership and benevolence committees. The society is also a member of the Ohio Council of Higher Education Retirees. The group continues to be an active member of the Bowling Green State University community.
