TRTA Membership

There are a couple of ways that you can join TRTA:

1. You may join at your local unit (contact TRTA to find out where the closest local unit is to you, or go here for the Local Units Web Directory). According to the TRTA Bylaws, Article IV: Members, Section 1 states: Beginning July 1, 2004, any new member of a Local Unit, defined as a member who was not a member of that Local Unit in the previous year, shall also belong to the state organization.

2. You may join as an at-large member at the State level. Dues are $25 annually (Membership Year: July 1 - June 30). You also may choose to pay by check, or by payroll deduction from your TRS annuity. If you choose payroll deduction, you'll need TRS Form 593. Dues are $2.08 monthly. (For retirees only.)

On the TRTA Membership Enrollment form there are two membership designations: "regular" and "associate." If you are a retired public school district or higher educational institution employee, you will be a "regular" member. If you are a person who is interested in retiree or educational issues, such as a friend or a spouse of a member, you should sign up as an "associate" member.
