About the CCRA Board

The CCRA is a volunteer organization of retired faculty, administrative and support staff.

It was set up in 2002 by Linda Choptiany. The Centennial College Retirees was and continues to be supported by the Centennial College President’s Office and the Board of Governors.

Over the first few years, the directors drew up the Mission Statement and By-Laws. The Board organizes for its members, two luncheons and an Annual General Meeting each year.
