The Friends of CRC Association

Established by the Communications Research Centre (CRC) in 1994, the Friends of CRC is an association of CRC alumni and others who have an ongoing interest in the well-being and public image of CRC, as well as in social and technical activities. As CRC employees retire, they can continue to be actively involved with the CRC through this association. In the interest of keeping its leading role within communications research and development, CRC encourages involvement that helps to maintain scientific, technical and corporate expertise. Friends of CRC plays a valuable role by facilitating access to the years of knowledge and experience accumulated by retired staff.

The continued relationship with employees of CRC, as well as participation by non-CRC professional associates, is enabled by membership in the Friends of CRC association which:

  • assists CRC to maintain a link with its past history and achievements;
  • allows continued involvement in CRC's special events;
  • boosts CRC's presence in the communications research and development communities; and
  • contributes to a national awareness of CRC and its missions.

Business Status of Members

Formal business relationships of members as individuals or as officials of private sector organizations should conform to the provisions of conflict-of-interest guidelines for former employees, without undue constraint upon or limitation of their professional activities and interests.

Mentoring in the CRC Research Program

In addition to the above primary objectives of the Association at large, members may fill "researcher emeritus" positions with continued direct involvement in the Research Program in order to "mentor" CRC junior researchers, using their valuable experience.

R&D Projects by Association Members

Association professional members may propose research projects which can advance the CRC missions and objectives, but which are not within the CRC Operational Plan. The proposed projects will be approved by CRC's Senior Scientific Committee.
