Welcome to the web page for the

Brazosport Association of Retired Teachers!

If you are a retired Texas education employee, come join us! TRTA fights to protect the interests of members of the Texas Teacher Retirement System. In the next Texas legislative session (2015) legislators will consider changes to TRS Care, our medical insurance, and only through the strength of numbers will our voice be heard on maintaining this vital benefit. Additionally, there are certain to be continued attacks on the TRS retirement plan. Your help is vitally important!

Membership in BART is also a great way to keep up with old friends and colleagues, and there are many other benefits. Contact any of our officers, listed at the right, for information on joining TRTA and our local unit.

We usually meet on the third Wednesday of each month during the school year, with a special "We Don't Have to Go Back to School" breakfast on the first day of school. Click on the Meetings and Programs link here or at the left for more information.

If you have something you feel would be appropriate on this site, contact Andy Smith at to see about having it posted.
