IRTA and the Illinois Principals Association (IPA) are working together to benefit the memberships of both Associations. The agreement is very simple. Here's how it works: When an active member of IPA retires and joins IPA Retired, the membership in IPA Retired automatically includes membership in the IRTA.
IRTA and IPA have a history of working together on various issues. The IPA has always helped us to promote the IRTA Foundation grants by sending flyers and emails to its members. IRTA, on the other hand, has always provided a seminar to those IPA members who are about to retire from education.
This partnership is a win-win situation for both Associations. The IPA provides to its retired members both the benefits and the representation resulting from IRTA membership. IRTA, on the other hand, increases its membership of retired Illinois educators, as well as increases its exposure to the active IPA membership. This partnership is another positive step in our membership recruitment efforts in school districts.
If you are currently a member of IRTA but are also eligible for IPA Retired membership, please consider joining IPA Retired.
