(SMART) - Hays County is a local unit of the Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA).  Our members are retired public school employees from Hays County and the surrounding area.  Teachers and non-teaching school personnel who are retired under the Teacher Retirement System (TRS) are invited to attend any meeting and become a member.  Active (non-retired) school employees and those interested in supporting the work of TRTA and SMART - Hays County may join as associate members.

Meetings are on the second Thursday of each month September - May. 
Meeting times and locations vary, so please check the details on the tab next to HOME.
All locations are in San Marcos, TX unless otherwise noted.
