Retirement does not mean leaving - Keep this link strong!
Active Retired Members (ARM) Organization
We are pleased to announce that District 24 OSSTF is launching an ARM Chapter! In 1996, OSSTF established a new type of membership specifically for Active Retired Members. The ARM Organization allows retired members to remain actively involved with their colleagues both politically and socially.
Local ARM Chapters across the province provide members with opportunities to gather for social and informative events and political action activities. Active retirement offers an opportunity for continuing involvement with OSSTF both at the local and provincial levels. The experience, skills and abilities of retired members are valuable resources to advance the interests of active and retired members and the school community at large.
Our elected Executive is:
President: Richard Clausi
Vice – President: Joe Amatruda
Secretary: Rennie Ladan
Treasurer: Brenda Wiles
Newsletter Editors: Michele Altermann & Wendy Foxall
Political Action Chair: John Ryrie
