The Georgia Tech Silver Jackets is an organization for retired Georgia Tech faculty, staff, and their spouses. Monthly meetings feature guest speakers on a wide range of topics, providing an opportunity to socialize and find ways to serve the Tech community.  The Silver Jackets aim to be a strong voice for Georgia Tech retirees on issues of interest, such as retirement and health benefits.  Meeting notices and other helpful information are sent regularly via email to all members.

From a founding group of 12 retirees we’ve grown to over 600 members and welcome new members. All Georgia Tech faculty and staff who retire in good standing are eligible to join. We charge no dues, but accept donations through the Georgia Tech Foundation.

Meetings are usually held in the Georgia Tech Student Center beginning at 11:00 AM on the second Tuesday of the month from September to May, except December. There is paid visitor parking adjacent to the Student Center. Minutes are posted on this website. In December a Holiday Luncheon is held at a local restaurant.
