Active Retired Members Chapter

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 newly- elected Executive is:

President:  Richard Clausi 

Vice – President:  Joe Amatruda 

Secretary: Rennie Ladan 

Treasurer: Brenda Wiles 

Newsletter Editor:  Sue Senior & Wendy Foxall
