VRTA Fall Conference
October 14 - 16, 2019
Richmond Doubletree- Midlothian
Due date for the fall newsletter is August 21, 2019
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.
