Registration for the 66th Annual TRTA Convention to be held in Austin, Texas April 1–2, 2019 closes this coming Friday, March 1! This year’s theme is Connecting the Dots to TRTA’s Success, a meaningful metaphor that matches TRTA’s legislative goals as we head into another challenging session in the Texas capital city! The convention will be held at the Austin Hilton on 500 E. 4th Street. TRTA members can register online by clicking here.
There is no better time to be in Austin! The Texas Legislature will be in regular session, discussing such vital issues as the TRS–Care health insurance program and ways to protect the longevity of benefits for our public education retirees and pre–retirees.
More than 1,000 TRTA members are expected to come to Austin to receive training, hear from legislators, and receive a comprehensive legislative session update. This year’s sessions include “Making a Digital Memory Book,” “Benefits of Owning a Pet,” “The Texas Silver Haired Legislature,” officer and committee training sessions, and more! Members will convene for a Pep Rally on the afternoon of April 2 to prepare for the April 3 TRTA Day at the Capitol event and learn how TRTA wants the Legislature to #RaisetheBase. A complete schedule of events is listed here. A full update about TRTA Day at the Capitol will be emailed out later this week.
Don’t forget to submit your convention registration by this Friday, March 1! REGISTER NOW! We look forward to seeing you in Austin on April 1.
