Membership in COMARA
COMARA is an association open to former COMSAT employees and surviving spouses. COMSAT was one of the most extraordinary and unique venture of the space age.
Many former COMSAT employees are receiving or will in the future receive - pensions, medical coverage or other benefits. COMSAT as we knew it has disappeared with pieces scattered in a variety of directions or dissolved. There will be no focal point for information on benefits status or former employees. Initially, a few of us as Founding Board of Directors undertook the task of establishing an alumni and retirees association to achieve several purposes and we hope you will join us. The Founding Board has now been replaced by an elected board and several committees have been working to achieve the goals.
HOW TO JOIN:

If you cannot register online, please contact us by email or telephone, or old-fashion mail, (click link "Contact Us") - and we will send you a paper registration form.

NOTE TO NEW MEMBERS
The payment of dues is required before you have full access to the pages in this site. Along with spam in your mailbox and predators attempting to install malware on your computer, COMARA also has to deal with a population that attempts to get into this web site and add links and unacceptable content. Bogus attempts to register have increased from a few attempts per month to several per hour. The payment of dues is one way that we have of validating you as a member. We don't collect much personal information from you that can be used for identity theft. We also make every effort to keep the contact information you have provided available only to paid members.
