The RFSA was organized in 2007 to help strengthen the connection among Texas State retirees. Primary goals of the organization include representing retired faculty and staff regarding university benefits and other issues directly relevant to retirees; serving as a conduit for improving communication between the university and retired faculty and staff; enhancing the participation of retired faculty and staff in university activities; developing and organizing activities and events of special interest to retirees; and identifying and supporting scholarships, lectures and other university special events.
Major accomplishments to date have included providing valuable input to the university’s retiree benefits policy, developing an official website, getting retirees who want to be listed in the published and on-line faculty and staff directory and refining the university’s retiree contact information.
Membership is open to all Texas State University retirees and surviving spouses of deceased retirees.
Retired faculty and staff members of other accredited colleges or universities may become Associate Members. For more information regarding the RFSA, check the organization’s website at www.txstate.edu/rfsaEmail | Print
