We want to be a source of inspiration, information, and YOU are the reason we reach our legislative goals.  We need YOU, your ideas, suggestions.  How can we serve YOU?  How can we cooperate to assist IRTA in preserving our pensions, reaching COLA goals, sponsoring retired educator legislation?  E-mail ideas to Donna Kenney, Legislative Chair, at


For the past three years, IRTA has been honored by the Governor for service to the State of Indiana --1.000.000 service hours each '04, '05, '06 year, 3,0000,000 altogether -- awesome. No other group in Indiana has ever been honored for this level of volunteerism.  Join IRTA. Join our efforts to make our communities, our State,  healthier, safer, better places for our children to live.


The partnership between IRTA and CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) has been endorsed by the Indiana State Legislature, the volunteer having the opportunity to speak for abused and neglected children in court. 4.000 chilren on the waiting list for a CASA.  This program needs retired educators.  Does it speak to you?  E-Mail Donna Kenney for information.
