The MSURA is operated by a volunteer Advisory Council and decisions are made by consensus. The Advisory Council consists of retiree volunteers who meet monthly. There are 4 committees: Program, Communications, Finance, Health Benefits and any retiree can serve on a committee and/or the Advisory Council. The Advisory Council welcomes the participation of retired faculty, professional and classified staff. Organization administrative support is provided by the MSU Alumni Foundation, whose staff also facilitates MSURA's outreach activities. Budget support comes from the MSU Provost, the MSU Alumni Foundation and the Retiree Fund held at the Alumni Foundation.
