What is the RMA?

The Retired Men’s Association of Boston/Metrowest and nearby communities is a stand-alone group.  It has no affiliation with any other organization.  The Association is non-partisan, not for profit and non-sectarian.

The RMA was founded in 1998 as a community service organization, encouraging  Fellowship, Service and Volunteerism among men who, after their careers, wanted to stay active and involved with other men in a similar stage of life. Today, nearly 200 men from our area are members. They band together to enjoy the fellowship of others at our monthly meetings and in several activities, to visit local attractions and to enjoy special lunches, and our annual dinner.

The RMA meets monthly at the First Baptist Church of Sudbury, MA (See map in right margin). Each meeting begins with a brief business session followed by a coffee break where members can mingle and talk to each other, guests and new members. The Speaker of the month is then introduced and the one hour presentation begins. Speakers include civic and government leaders, authorities on the arts, literature, law, environment, science, entertainment, and history. If you look at the SPEAKERS pages on this website and the Bulletins, you can see that we value presenting a wide range of topics to suit our members’ diverse interests.

If you are not a current member, we urge you to investigate the many ways membership in the RMA can enrich your life, and contribute to our community. For further information, email: Nick Veeder at nv2ma2@gmail.com  or Paul Sturgis at pssturgis@aol.com
