Welcome to the CMERA Website

Thank you for visiting our website!  We update our pages on a regular basis, so we encourage you to check back frequently. 

Congratulations on your Retirement and welcome to the ranks of some 4,900 non-uniform retirees!  We hope that your retirement is long, healthful and fulfilling!

Our association, incorporated in 1980 as a non-profit corporation, was created in part to maintain a link between the retirees and the Board of Trustees of the Cincinnati Retirement System (CRS). Elected CMERA board members attend the CRS Board meetings as well as committee meetings, to maintain our presence and hear firsthand any proposed changes to the retirement system or benefits. We actively apprise/advise the CRS, as well as City Council, of our position as representatives of  CMERA retirees on various matters.


We conduct two semi-annual general membership meetings, one in May and the second meeting in October.  We currently meet in Council Chambers of City Hall, on a Saturday. We also try to maintain a relaxed casual atmosphere during our meetings by offering free donuts and coffee.  As a CMERA member, you will receive meeting reminders of when and where we’re meeting as well as the proposed agenda. We have an informative web site at where you can go to get information on social activates, current news, etc. CMERA members, in good standing, can also vote on issues presented at CMERA meetings.  Our May newsletter is mailed to all retirees, our October newsletter is mailed only to CMERA members.

We look forward to receiving your application and meeting you soon!  If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact me or one of the other CMERA officers and if you provide us with your e-mail address we’ll e-mail you important information as it arises.
