Twinleaf : Membership
The Twinleaf Society is a voluntary group representing all retired employees of the University of Virginia's College at Wise who wish to maintain contact with the College and each other. The Society was founded in 2003.
Upon realizing the interest of establishing a retiree group, the parties involved sought to select a name that would best reflect the identity of the group. After careful consideration, the name, Twinleaf Society was chosen. The symbolic importance of "Twinleaf" is twofold. "Twin" denotes the dual nature of the group, faculty and staff. While "Twinleaf," a plant with the generic name of Jeffersonia, is the ideal tie between the group and Mr. Jefferson's university.
Membership in the Twinleaf Society is open to all retired employees of the University of Virginia's College at Wise. The association provides activities, communication, and certain privileges. The fee for membership is currently $10.00.
Membership is also open to spouses, even if they have not worked at the University of Virginia's College at Wise, although they may not be eligible for all of the campus privileges that are available to former employees.
Numbering approximately 34 members, the Twinleaf Society has an elected Board of Directors, which includes a President, Secretary, and Treasurer, plus at-large members.
The Twinleaf Society holds periodic meetings on the UVa-Wise campus, at which time members receive a report on activities and finances and have the opportunity to interact.
Membership to the Twinleaf Society is open to all retired employees of the University of Virginia's College at Wise (Faculty and Staff). The annual fee for membership is currently $10.00.
