For the safety of our members the KRTA Executive Council voted at its December meeting to hold the 2021 KRTA Convention virtually.  It is our hopes and prayers that with the vaccination role out in process we will be able to hold our Fall Workshops in-person this coming year.  The first day of the 2021 Virtual Convention will be held on April 19, 2021 beginning at 10:00 AM (EST) 9:00 AM (CST).  All members will be sent a link to register for the convention approximately 1 month prior the convention date.  It is vital that you pre-register as early as possible to ensure your ability to log on to the Virtual Convention.  As we did for the Virtual Fall Workshops last year.  Each KRTA local will receive $25 per member that attends the 2021 Virtual Convention up to $125.  During the Virtual Convention TRS Executive Secretary, Gary Harbin and staff will share an update on TRS including any changes at TRS following the 2021 General Assembly.  We will also have TRS partners, i.e., United Health Care, Anthem, Rx Coalition, and Corrielle Life Sciences share updates to their programs.  KRTA partners will also be included to share your benefits of being a member of KRTA.


On April 20 at 10:00 AM (EST) 9:00 AM (CST) KRTA will hold its Delegate Assembly virtually as well.  During the Delegate Assembly leadership for the upcoming will be elected and will be voting on the updated KRTA Constitution and By-Laws and legislative program.  KRTA Committee Co-Chairs will be giving updates from the Health and Insurance, Membership and Legislative Committees.  KRTA Executive Director Tim Abrams will share the KRTA financial report and give an update on all things KRTA for the past year.  Local KRTA Presidents will be receiving information on how to submit delegates to attend.
