Collins Aerospace employees & family members
are invited to become members
Collins Aerospace employees and family members are invited to become members at the Rec Center. A variety of membership options are available for the employees and their immediate and extended family members. The Rec Center offers membership to Collins retirees receiving benefits and their immediate and extended family. Contract employees of Collins are also eligible to join the Rec Center and may sponsor immediate family members. Please stop in for a tour or for additional information at any time.
The greatest compliment a member can give the Rec Center is to refer a family member or eligible friend for membership.

The current award options are: a gym bag, a back pack, an Ogio dry fit t-shirt or a 20 oz. stainless steel tumbler. These items are on display near the front desk at the Rec Center.
