Ray Sitter. Director 
Brandon, Manitoba

In my previous life, I have been a teacher and an administrator of a school in Brandon. Some of the activities I participate in are: volunteer with the Cancer Society driver program in Brandon; My wife and I drive for Meals on Wheels and work with the Brandon Economic Development Board as Tourist Greeters. We also are president couple for our Square Dance Club. In the Fall and Spring, I supervise student teachers for B.U. In the Summer, I have a small job that allows me to travel the southern parts of Saskatchewan.

I am a member of the local retired teachers group, WREA and also of the Seniors for Seniors organization in Brandon. In my spare time I like to make wine. Seeing the latest COLA, the wine comes in handy.

My interest has always been in resolving the COLA issue, pension issues and working with financial issues and retirees. These have been central to my involvement with RTAM. I have been a member of RTAM since retiring. I have been a member of the Board for about a dozen years. Since that time I have been on the Political Action Committee the Membership committee, the Bylaws and Policy Committee and the Pension Committee. My goal has not changed. I see myself as a worker with a vision and not just a dreamer. With your help and support we can make things happen. The board cannot do it alone.


Retirement is a time of transitions. Throughout your career you belonged to the Manitoba Teachers’ Society (MTS), but upon retirement you are no longer a member. The Retired Teachers’ Association of Manitoba (RTAM) exists to serve retired teachers. We invite you to join the growing number of RTAM members and enjoy the benefits of belonging.
