Raytown Retired Teachers and School Personnel Association was honored as a Missouri Retired Teachers Association and Public School Personnel (MRTA) Unit of Excellence at the MRTA Annual Meeting held on September 11 and 12, 2018. The Unit of Excellence award is given annually to MRTA Units who meet specific criteria and display extraordinary efforts to protect the retirement benefits of educators, support public schools, and volunteerism in the local community. The 2017 Unit of Excellence honor was extended to 59 of the 148 MRTA Units throughout the state. The Missouri Retired Teachers Association and Public School Personnel is a statewide association consisting of over 27,000 members and 148 units. MRTA’s #1 priority is to promote and protect pensions, programs, and benefits of all public school personnel.

Dues for 2019 are payable now. They currently have 26 members so only 199 to go to meet their goal for 2019. You should be receiving your dues reminder from MRTA about October 1 unless you are a life member, opted to pay for three years or have signed up for automatic deduction. They are currently working on the slate of officers for 2019. If there is any small or large position that interests you, contact Myrna Mathews. Don’t be shy. They are seriously in need of an historian who likes to make simple scrapbooks.
