The GPHSA Retiree Auxiliary offers an opportunity for Georgia human services retirees to enjoy the benefits of membership in GPHSA.
The Retiree Auxiliary is organized to continue interest in and support for the parent organization, the Georgia Professional Human Services Association, and to maintain interest and support for fellow retirees.
GPHSA Constitution for the Retiree Auxiliary
Article III – Auxiliaries (Last revised 11/2000), Section 1 – Retiree Auxiliary
- Membership in the retiree auxiliary of GPHSA shall be limited to retired persons who support the purposes of GPHSA.
- The retiree auxiliary may organize as deemed necessary and elect officials.
- The Board of Directors, upon recommendation of the auxiliary, shall establish annual dues. Dues are payable each year in January.
- The retiree auxiliary shall report to the Board at each Board Meeting the status of the auxiliary’s activities.
Membership dues are $20 per year, payable to GPHSA.
The Retiree Auxiliary has been continuously active. They meet twice per year (Winter and Annual Conference). They collect dues of $20/year for membership; 50% of that is under their control and is used to cover lodging for the President at meetings and sponsorship of the Legislative Reception. Of tremendous importance is the relationship of this Auxiliary to the Georgia State Retirees Association (GSRA), which has resulted in very successful Legislative Receptions. Many retiree members are on County and Regional DFCS Boards, and continue to have wonderful relationships with the ERSGA (Employees Retirement System of Georgia).
