 ORTA monitors legislative efforts on a year-round basis to represent the retired teachers' best interest in the Ohio General Assembly. ORTA monitors all State Teachers' Retirement System  committee meetings. Your retirement benefits and your health care benefits are not possible without the approval of the Ohio general Assembly and the STRS Board. ORTA is truly the voice of Ohio's retired teachers.  ORTA dues are $30 a year, and the dues may be paid through GCRTA if desired.  A life-time membership in ORTA is $500 and can be paid over one or two years.  GCRTA is an ORTA affiliate.  Membership in both organizations is not a requirement, but it is desirable.   DUAL MEMBERSHIPS are encouraged which permits the GCRTA to have a TRUSTEE to ORTA.  

Requirements for Membership One must be a retired educator and must receive a retirement benefit from a state teachers' retirement system.    Teachers on Disability Retirement are also welcome to join both of the organizations.  Associate members may be husbands/wives of retired teachers or "positive" individuals who are interested in the education of youth.

Meetings: GCRTA meets at noon for a luncheon meeting on a quarterly basis. Meetings are held at the Memorial United Presbyterian Church located on Fairgrounds Road in Xenia, Ohio.  The meetings are informative, entertaining, and social. Presently a meal is prepared for $12.00.  The facility is ideally suited and accessible for the handicapped. (See Announcement Page for details)

Board of Directors' Meetings: Board meetings are held at Memorial Presbyterian Church at 1:00, (See announcements for dates and times).    All members are invited to attend the Board meetings. 

Luncheon dates and Business Meetings: Luncheon dates are at 11:30. (See announcement page for dates and times.)  All luncheons are held at Memorial Presbyterian Church,  343 W. Ankeney Mill Rd.  Xenia  , Ohio  . (Across from the fairground) Business Meetings are followed by the luncheon and program.

Activities:  The GCRTA sponsors a scholarship program for Greene County youth who exhibit promise in academic areas and who plans to attend college to become teachers.

GCRTA plans meetings with certified staff in each of the Greene County School Districts during the school calendar year to share the benefits of belonging to ORTA and GCRTA.  It is the responsibility of the organization's Retirement Chairperson to contact each of the districts to set informational meetings.  Membership is critical in both GCRTA and ORTA  to maintain and improve retirement benefits. 

Newsletters:  Greene County Retired Teachers' members receive a quarterly news-letter to keep the membership informed on legislation affecting retirement benefits, and on matters from the Ohio Retired Teachers Association (i.e. House Bills, luncheon dates, outings, and other essential information.)
