Non-adult guests must be children of adult sponsors or the adult sponsor must provide notarized proof of guardianship.

TRA Membership Classification Change & Fee Structure Change

On March 21st the TRA Board approved changes to the Robertson Association Membership Classifications and fee structure.

The membership change will affect all Junior Members beginning March 28, 2015. The Board has decided to remove the Junior Membership classification and convert all current Junior Members to Family Dependent Members. The Membership Secretary will attempt to work with all current Junior Members on a case by case basis to ease this transition. The change will only affect the classification not the rights of the member. The recently converted members will still be required to follow all of the TRA bylaws and requirements to attend the annual Membership Meeting.
