2020 Pre-retirement Seminars
ASURA offers seminars for those who are planning to retire from ASU. These are typically held at noon on the ASU campus, and are also offered online using Zoom meeting technology. When given permission, we upload the Zoom version of the seminars to YouTube so that you can watch them whenever and wherever you want. We typically add a link to each seminar's video a few days after it is held.
