ARTA is the only organization in Arkansas dedicated exclusively to protecting and promoting
the interests of retired public school personnel.


We represent the interests of all public school retirees by:

  •      working closely with other organizations to protect and enhance current and future retirement benefits;

  •      advocating for improved health insurance coverage at affordable rates for active and retired school  

  •      providing information and services to help retirees live safe, healthy and independent lives;

  •      providing opportunities for retirees to remain personally and professionally active.

While all public school retirees ultimately benefit from these efforts, ARTA members also receive the following benefits:

  •      cost-effective membership in a professional organization;

  •      invitations to educational meetings and programs, including an annual convention;

  •      subscription to the INTERLINK quarterly newsletter;

  •      networking, service and leadership opportunities;

  •      custom travel opportunities at affordable price points;

  •      consultations with our endorsed insurance providers; group discounts on select products;

  •      a representative voice at meetings of legislators, policy-makers, and other organizations with similar  
         membership interests.

Members and their guests are invited to participate in safe, affordable trips custom designed for ARTA.

Travel Opportunities
