ARTA is a professional, not-for-profit membership organization. We are dedicated to protecting the interests of retirees receiving benefits from the Arkansas Teacher Retirement System and to promoting the personal, professional, social and economic interests of all current and future retired education personnel.

ARTA leadership is provided by a volunteer board of directors. They employ an executive director who carries out board directives and employs the staff needed to manage the day-to-day operations of the association.

ARTA is divided into eight membership areas. Area leadership councils serve as the liaison between the ARTA leadership and staff and the counties in their area. Each county is encouraged to establish and maintain at least one local membership unit.

Local units are given some guidelines from the state office regarding their structure and function, but are otherwise autonomous in their operation.

ARTA currently has more than 12,500 active members. Membership is open to anyone who participates in the Arkansas Teacher Retirement System or who supports the mission of ARTA.

MORE ABOUT ARTA ...

ARTA hosts an annual convention in the fall of each year. All members are invited to participate in the event, which includes a business session, educational sessions, presentation of awards and scholarships, a silent auction, vendors and exhibits.

Annual Convention
Parsons-Burnett Scholarship Grants

ARTA awards competitive scholarship grants for practicing educators in Arkansas's public schools to further their graduate study.

Area councils conduct a conference each spring to elect officers and to share current information between local members and the state leadership and staff.
