Report to the 2018 AGM

Respectfully submitted by Ken Malcolm, Chair (Dauphin)

Members: Bill Cann (Winnipeg), Ralph Cibula (Gladstone),Guy Hansen (Winnipeg), John Sushelnitsky (Portage la Prairie)

We had a great year and truly worked hard on many ideas such as RTAM promotional items, a “branding slogan", and many ideas “FOR THE GOOD of RTAM” members including endeavoring to encourage a much higher percentage of new retirees to join our organization.

This year we obtained quality tote bags c/w RTAM branding, RTAM logo'd pens as well as useful Dry Erase Memo Boards for use on fridges, etc. We really wanted to keep our RTAM logo visible to our current membership. We explored promotional RTAM coffee mugs but decided the idea was an idea that “had passed its prime”.

In addition we developed a “Borrowing Protocol “for our Upright RTAM Banner, our Parade Banner and our flags. One of the committee members has had a sturdy shipping box built so that our upright banner can be safely shipped out to local RTAM Chapters. He also constructed a long tube type container for shipping of our flags and parade banner. Our promotional flags and banners can now be shipped safely and securely

We also worked on the “hospitality room” for AGM members and potential committee members to get better acquainted in the evenings after their arrival at our 2018 AGM.

We had a good year and as PR Chairperson, I have to say it was a pleasure to work with members who used their lifelong experiences to make this committee work so well. They were very accepting of each other’s very diverse ideas and backgrounds. These people are who really make RTAM such a smooth running machine.


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.
