About the Retirement Trust Foundation http://www.iaap-rtf.org/
The International Association of Administrative Professionals was first established in 1942. Its vision is simple: to inspire and equip all administrative professionals to attain excellence. In 1958, a Declaration of Trust created the National Secretaries Association Home Trust Fund. The Retirement Trust Foundation was created in 2000. This independent, non-profit organization is administered by a six member International Board of Trustees, four of whom are elected at large from the membership of the International Association of Administrative Professionals and serve with the IAAP International President and Treasurer.
The IAAP Retirement Trust Foundationis a tax-exempt charitable organization. Contributions made to the Foundation are deductible. Bequests, legacies, devises, transfers or gifts to or for the Trust's use are deductible for Federal estate and gift tax purposes.
The Trust was formed and operates exclusively for charitable purposes; i.e., for the primary purpose of acquiring, maintaining and operating homes for needy and elderly administrative professionals and otherwise assisting needy and elderly administrative professionals. The demand for comfortable, affordable housing for retired administrative professionals is growing, and the RTF seeks to help fill that need with Vista Grande.
The benefits of the RTF begin from the time you become a member of IAAP. The trust publishes RTF reVisions quarterly for all members, sponsors sessions at international conventions, and is currently working on an online resource center of links and other information for retirees and future retirees.
