WHY JOIN RFSA?
The RFSA Advisory Board has been pondering this question: Why should one join the Retired Faculty and Staff Association at Texas State University? We are frankly puzzled why more, if not all, Texas State retirees do not join RFSA.
• We have considered that some retirees may now simply want to be “uninvolved” with anything associated with Texas State. If this is the case, we wish you well.
• We understand one’s desire to take a break for a period of time.If this is the case, belonging to RFSA requires nothing of you but completing the simple application.
•We understand some of you may be concerned that joining may allow for undesired solicitation from University Advancement. If this is the case, and you receive a solicitation and do not wish to give back – just politely say “no”.
YOU NEED RFSA AND RFSA NEEDS YOU!
