A Message From Our President and the President of MEA

Dear Members and Friends,
    Welcome to our newly revised, redesigned and expanded website!  Pam Partridge, our new Web Administrator, has expended much thought, time and energy in effecting these changes.  We hope you find the information most helpful and the site quite user-friendly.  If you have any suggestions as to how we might improve the site or better serve you, please contact me at
thmoore41@myfairpoint.net or Pam at pampartridge1@gmail.com.

The Maine Education Association Retired (MEA-Retired) and the Maine Education Association (MEA) welcome you to the ranks of retired educators. All personnel, who are retired from a career of service in education, are invited to join the Maine Education Association Retired. 

Thanks to your hard work, dedication, and activism, our Maine schools are ranked among the best in the nation. Now you get to choose how to spend each day and enjoy it to the fullest. If we are to preserve and protect our past accomplishments, as well as safeguard any future benefits, however, your membership is vital. In light of past attacks on our pension program, the COLA (Cost of Living Adjustment), and health insurance, we must stand together and be vocal. Each voice counts. The need for members to stay involved is critical.

Please join our active colleagues, therefore, in defending public education and educators. Enjoy fellowship, shared interests, and professional benefits. Support our work for legislation and other causes which help all educators. Please become a unified member of your county (local affiliate), state, and national organizations.
