History of OEA-Retired
OEA-Retired was first organized as NEA-Retired-Oregon in November 1985 to benefit its members and public education, by supporting:
- state and national legislation and activities designed to maintain and guarantee such retirement programs as Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and Public Employees Retirement System.
- activities and legislation that support children and public education at local, state, and national levels.
- activities and social programs that contribute to the enjoyment of living and participation with others.
The motto of OEA-Retired — Stay Involved. Stay Invigorated. Stay In Touch — was adopted in 2011 and guides the officers and 50-member Board of Directors in its deliberations.
Since its inception, OEA-Retired has been affiliated with NEA-Retired, Oregon Education Association and National Education Association.
