Membership in CRTA is open to, any retired teacher in the Calgary area who has contributed to the Alberta Teachers' Retirement Fund. Special considerations may be extended to retirees not precisely fitting the above requirement. The annual membership fee is $21.00 (including GST). Membership entitles retirees to receive the CRTA Newsletter published in September, November, March and May. The Newsletter provides up-to-date information about the activities of CRTA, about ARTA's Group Benefits Programs, volunteer opportunities and news about other seniors' programs and activities taking place in the Calgary area.
The Newsletter is mailed quarterly prior to the four luncheon meetings. The luncheons are a great opportunity for CRTA members to meet with old friends and colleagues. There is a short business meeting and entertainment is often provided by student groups.
