The Kamloops Thompson Retired Teachers’ Association (KTRTA) started in 1971 as a branch of the British Columbia Retired Teachers’ Association (BCRTA).
We want to welcome you! The Kamloops Thompson Retired Teacher’s Association branch of the BCRTA geographically covers not just the Kamloops Thompson region, we also reach areas of the province west of Kamloops to Lillooet, east to Chase, south to Westwold and north to Blue River. We include retired educators from the Gold Trail and Kamloops Thompson School Districts. We have members who taught elsewhere in Canada and joined our local branch when they moved to our region for their retirement. We currently have approximately 450 members. We look forward to keeping in touch with everyone!
If you are reading this and you are not yet a member, please consider joining our branch. If you are a member, congratulations, and thank you for supporting our regional efforts to communicate on activities related to our common interests, encourage good health and happiness, provide social activities such as our lunch and speaker sessions and so much more. We hope to see you at our local branch events!
We welcome new members and the good news is that new members are always free for their first year: after that, BCRTA membership is $40/year for BCRTA and it is just $5.00/year more to include the extra benefits of belonging to our local branch: the KTRTA. Membership is available to all retired educators from every province and it is so easy to join our association: just go to the BCRTA and fill in the membership form. Don’t forget to select the box to join the Kamloops Thompson Branch! Or, give the BCRTA a call, toll free, at 1-(877)-683-2243 and Laurie Boyd will sign you up.
Our mission at the KTRTA is to enhance the quality of life for all of our local branch members. We try our best to provide welcome social connection, engagement with important issues at the local level and provide the BCRTA with representation from this broad region of B.C. [Read more…]
