Message from Our New President - Terry Tatrai

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas season filled with many beautiful moments with your families and friends.  I wish you and your families every blessing in 2018.

At our Christmas luncheon, University President Ken Gormley shared future plans for Duquesne, Dr. Charles Winek was honored as outgoing President of DURA, and I was introduced as the new President.

The past year's events included a Spring Luncheon, a Pirate baseball game, and the Christmas luncheon.

Because of the transition of Board members, the Fall trip was cancelled. The new Board members are looking forward to more involvement and new ideas. A survey was taken at the Christmas luncheon, and a survey will be included with your dues letter or email along with the membership form. We look forward to receiving feedback from our members. Please encourage your friends to join us. Be sure to check out our web pages at: for upcoming and past events.

The annual dues are $20. Our new Treasurer, John Sucha, has made some great improvements. Dues can now be paid online.

You can also pay by check. Make it payable to Duquesne University and send it to:

John Sucha
112 Tillotson Circle
Pittsburgh, PA 15237

Our annual dues help with covering entertainment, keeping the cost of on-campus lunches reasonable, and other DURA expenses. We strive to keep the cost on all events as low as possible. We hope that you will continue to support our events.

Yours sincerely,

Terry Tatrai
Duquesne University Retirees Association
