Questionnaires for the 1997-98 Directory of MIT Retirees were mailed this week to some 2,800 retirees who have addresses in New England.
The Association of MIT Retirees plans to issue a new directory in early November. Retirees living outside New England may request a questionnaire by calling the Association office at (617) 253-7910 and leaving a message. Membership in the Association is $10 for 1997-98 and includes a copy of the directory and mailings based on interests specified on the questionnaire.
This year's questionnaire seeks more detailed information about retirees' interests with goals of both broadening programs offered and putting retirees with similar interests in touch with one another through an information exchange maintained in the database.
Retirees who are members of the Quarter Century Club may turn in their questionnaires and checks at the Club's annual picnic on August 19.
MEDICAL REP WANTED
The Association has been asked to nominate a representative to the MIT Medical Consumers' Advisory Council. The group meets four times a year to discuss and suggest modifications or additions to services offered by the Medical Department.
Association members who would like to be considered for this opening and can make a commitment to attend the meetings must call the office and leave their name and comments about why they would like to be considered. The nomination must be made by the end of August.
