Production of a new directory of MIT retirees is well underway with distribution planned for late November.
The directory is a major project of the Association of MIT Retirees. It is derived from questionnaires sent this summer to some 1,400 persons who have retired from MIT since 1984 and live in New England, about half of whom have responded.
There is still time for others to be recorded in the directory-including those who don't live in the immediate area. To join the listing, send along name(s), address(es), telephone and e-mail or fax address to The Association of MIT Retirees, MIT Rm 20A-023, 77 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA 02139-4307. Please also include a check made payable to MIT for $10 to help defray expenses for production and distribution of the directory and membership in the Association. Listings must be received by Friday, Oct. 18 to be included in the directory.
New England area retirees are also invited to note MIT services they are interested in, such as travel, health education/medical programs, information systems training, MITAC events, and use of facilities such as the Hobby Shop, art studios and athletic programs.
Many retirees have said they are interested in information systems training. I/S courses are open to them on a space-available basis and catalogs are available by calling Tawny Wray at x3-7685.
In addition, retirees are welcome at open hours in the Training Lab (Rm 11-206) on Thursdays from 5-8pm and Fridays from 1-4pm. Instruction is available on self-paced software, and student consultants can offer individual help.
