Q & A



The Oil Patch TRTA School Employees unit was founded in 2016 and seeks to serve retirees in western Gregg, southern Upshur, and eastern Smith counties who are not members of another area unit. The best way to protect our health care or pension interests is to belong to the state TRTA group as well as a local association. Membership numbers are exceptionally important when reaching out to legislators on these issues.

Oil Patch meetings are generally held on the fourth (4th) Thursday most months of the academic year at the Gladewater First United Methodist Church, 217 Quitman @ Ferry Street (Jeter Hall) at 1:30pm.

Visitors, guests and potential members are always welcome at meetings.
