Established in 2011, the purpose of the Cosumnes River College Emeriti Association (CRCEA) is to help maintain personal and professional relationships, to provide information beneficial to former staff, to stimulate student achievement through scholarship programs, and to recognize staff for their outstanding contributions to the students and the College.

Past CRCEA President Lanny Hertzberg was instrumental in establishing the organization after recognizing the need for former colleagues to not only maintain contact with each other, but find ways to help students. They currently have 68 members and hold meetings on a quarterly basis.
