There are two key aspects to the work of the Association. Firstly, at national level there is a strong focus on looking after the interests of retired teachers in relation to pensions and other issues that impact on their welfare and wellbeing. Providing advice and services to individual members is central to this aspect of our work.
The policies and direction of the RTAI are set by an annual delegate convention. A twelve member National Executive Committee, comprising 11 retired teachers elected annually and the General Secretary oversee the activities of the Association on an ongoing basis.
The RTAI works closely with other kindred organisations and in particular values its relationship with the INTO.
