We Enrich Retired School Personnel's Lives!

The Virginia Retired Teachers Association (VRTA) -- a member of the National Retired Teachers Association (NRTA), Division of AARP -- is a nonprofit organization of retired and current educational personnel who have had responsibility in the educational process. For now 80 years, the VRTA has remained a strong voice on legislative issues that seek to ensure quality public education and that protect the security of the Virginia Retirement System. Insurance programs are available at discounted rates, which are especially helpful in retirement planning.

Attention District and Unit RTA Presidents

Here are 2 choices for recruitment posters you may wish to use in your local areas. Both can be personalized with your contact information. Download either or both. Places like Staples or the UPS store can make copies for you. UPS may have the best rate for copies but you know where you may have the best relationship and costs in your area. VRTA suggests you may want to place these flyers where retired educators would see them; grocery stores, public libraries, restaurants, schools, etc.. VRTA hopes we can attract new members with the placement of these flyers. Thanks for all of your efforts on behalf of VRTA.
