Tennessee Retired Teachers' Association
Ron's Challenge

Chapters are working tirelessly to fulfill Ron's Challenge in honor of his service to TRTA.  "Each one bring one" has the potential to double the membership in TRTA.  Do you have retired teacher friends who have not joined TRTA?  Now is the time to invite them to a local association meeting.

Ron  Pendergrass
retired from the position of TRTA Executive Director October 31, 2014. Many suggested that his years of service deserved special recognition.  Ron suggested that he would be honored if local associations across Tennessee met his Membership Challenge.

If you need a copy of Ron’s analysis, please contact Donna Cotner, Executive Director, at 1-800-342-8367 or you may contact Donna via email

The 2014 TRTA Representative Assembly approved an incentive of $200 to be awarded to the chapter with the greatest percentage increase in membership for the 2014-2015 membership year.  For further information about this award, visit the About Us page (Incentive for Increased Membership).

Go Team Go!  Help us meet Ron’s Membership Challenge.  Increase your local association membership and grow with TRTA and NEA-Retired.
