Illinois Retired Teachers Association 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 Illinois Retired Teachers Association.
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. Illinois Retried Teachers Association, 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 Illinois Retired Teachers Association membership. We increase our 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 Illinoise Retired Teachers Association but are also eligible for IPA Retired membership, please consider joining IPA Retired.
