FREE RAQ MEMBERSHIP COMING SOON!!

Free RAQ Membership 

 

Good news!

Your RAQ Membership Committee has been successful in negotiating free RAQ membership for all Queen’s retirees as of May 1, 2020.  You will continue to enjoy all the educational and social benefits your membership now gives you, and you’ll also profit from RAQ’s significant advocacy for retirees, but all you have to do in 2020 is register once as a lifetime member of RAQ; you’ll never have to fill out another RAQ form unless your personal details change.

RAQ Bursary

RAQ Bursary

Dear RAQ Members,

As 2019 draws to a close, some RAQ members may be thinking about their charitable giving, so we thought it was timely to remind you of the RAQ Bursary.

The RAQ Bursary was established in 2016 through the generosity of RAQ members and, since then, has provided $2500 a year to students in need whose studies have been interrupted. We have heard annually from the recipients this fund and they have told us how much the money has assisted them.
