A Message From our KTRTA President, Marney Bethell
The KTRTA has seven get-togethers each year, with delicious lunches and interesting speakers. These are scheduled for the last Friday of each month. We meet at the North Shore Community Centre at 730 Cottonwood Ave. in Kamloops. Doors open at 11:30 for a chance to socialize. Luncheons are catered by local restaurants. The programmes are planned by our executive team after surveying the membership for topics of interest. Our Christmas luncheon at the end of November is a festive turkey dinner and we have entertainment by a musical group from the community.
The KTRTA supports the work of the BCRTA helping to lobby the government on issues of importance to our members. We also lobby the BCRTA on issues of importance to our members that may not have been raised by the BCRTA.
The KTRTA produces a newsletter, The Bridge, twice a year. It is available on this website. Also available on the website are links to many organizations that members may want to access. The BCRTA link will get you to their website – be sure to read Postscript magazine and BCRTA Connections for information about the BCRTA’s activities and benefits for members. Also, check out the Affinity Programs that the BCRTA has negotiated with different groups for cost savings just for us. The Extended Health Coverage, travel insurance, Medoc, and home insurance, offered through Johnson Inc., are raved about by our members!
Hope to see you at a luncheon in the near future.
Marney Bethell, President KTRTA
