Advocacy

ARTA advocates for the personal, professional, social and economic interests of all Arkansas's public education retirees by:

  • Representing members at meetings where retirement and health insurance benefits* are determined;
    review of legislation concerning these benefits;

  • Maintaining cooperative relationships with AARP, NRTA*
    and other organizations with mutual interests;

  • Sharing information with elected officials on topics of interest to members;

  • Informing and empowering members to advocate for
    their own interests.
