    Use of "Emeritus/Emeriti" in Business Correspondence


    Please help. If I have a list of Emeriti I need to address in a piece of business correspondence, e.g. executive members, vice president, treasury secretary and directors, do I use "emeritus" or "emeriti" and where do I put it? I presume, it should be "Dear Executive Members, Vice President, Treasury Secretary and Directors Emeriti", but would like a second opinion.

    Academics who are Emeritus have retired but are allowed to keep their title as an honour.

    If this correspondence is going to a group of such academics, then Emeriti is correct and as you have it seems to be the right place.
