The Rochester Retired Teacher Association is a Department of the RTA, composed of all retired members of RTA.   Dues are 1/10 active teacher dues, at this time $39.30 per year.  The membership year is September 1 through August 31.

Dues-paying RRTA members receive all RRTA mailings and are entitled to vote in RTA elections, including elections for NYSUT, AFT, and NEA delegates.  Based on present membership, RRTA elects 28 Representatives to the RTA Representative Assembly.  RRTA elects a Department Chair, who sits on the RTA Executive Council.

Dues  paying RRTA members receive discounts on many RRTA activities, which are held, whenever possible, on school days, during school hours.

Upon payment of dues, an RRTA member receives the RTA/NYSUT pocket calendar to keep track of retiree activities.

Only retired RTA members are eligible for membership in RRTA.

 Good Reading With Our RRTA Book Club

The RRTA Book & Film Club continues to meet via Zoom every month on the 3rd Tues. at Noon. Maureen McCarron sponsors the Zoom link.  If you are interested and have not participated before, send Maureen an email to and she will send you the current link a few days before the scheduled mtg.  There is no required reading!  Join us if you can for stimulating conversation on current & classic books.

As you may remember, this Book Club does not discuss just one book per month.  We decide on a theme and discuss many great books & films on that theme every time we meet.  Here are our themes and scheduled dates for the rest of this academic year:
March 16:  Mysteries
April 20:  Family Sagas
May 18:  Mothers &/or Autobiographies
June 15:   Summer Beach Reading
We hope that the weather and COVID-19 immunization cooperates and we will be able to meet in person by summer time.  In any event, stay tuned!
The Book & Film Club is open to all RRTA members.  Bring a friend!  We look forward to seeing you in 2020.  Feel free to email me if you have any questions.
