SJSU ERFA Member Application Form

The SJSU Emeritus and Retired Faculty Association (SJSU ERFA) invites you to become a member of our organization which is comprised of faculty and academic administrators from SJSU who have retired before you.  Are you an Emeritus and/or retired tenured faculty member, or a faculty member participating in FERP, or a retired lecturer, or a retired academic administrator?  If so, please join us.

The primary purpose of ERFA is to help us maintain contact with each other as the years go by.  We provide an annual Directory with up-to-date addresses, and email a newsletter (pdf file)  to members four times a year.  The latter includes news of events and changes taking place on campus and information about members. The Directory is also released to University departments with the consent of the ERFA Executive Board.  Prior to the pandemic, we held a “Holiday Celebration” every December and two formal luncheons each year, one in the fall and one in the spring, with speakers or entertainment provided, and we schedule occasional field trips to museums, historical sites, and other places of interest throughout the Bay Area.  Currently we are hosting on-line events and small group gatherings (such as the movie group).  In addition, we fund an annual Faculty Award for currently employed colleagues to support their research and creative activities, and we encourage you to put your biography on our ERFA ScholarWorks webpage as part of your SJSU legacy.  You are welcome to participate in any or none of the events, as you see fit (Choosing to do only what you feel like doing is what retirement is all about).

We are pleased to provide you with your first year of ERFA membership free of charge, to acquaint you with our organization.  After that, if you choose to continue, membership dues are $24.00 per year, primarily to cover the cost of mailings. 

Please download the SJSU ERFA Membership Application for new members (Word File [docx]).  Send the completed form to the membership co-chair indicated on the form.

Although we are a separate organization, we are affiliated with the statewide CSU-Emeritus and Retired Faculty and Staff Association (CSU-ERFSA) which informs us of potential changes that can threaten our pension and health benefits and urge your consideration of membership in that group also.  Please follow the link below for further information about CSU ERFSA membership:
