Who Is CREA?

TRTA is the ONLY voice for retired educators! CREA is our local chapter, devoted to informing members of impending legislation which will directly impact their lives and providing a link to other retired educators locally.


The Crane Retired Educators Association is a local chapter of the Texas Retired Teachers Association, the statewide association that gives a voice Austin to retired school personnel. We enjoy monthly presentations at our meetings primarily concerning community and school issues, and we give books to early elementary students in the spring each year.
