Your Santa Maria CTA office has partnered with Laurie Hankins, our local STRS counselor, to plan the first of what we hope will be a series of workshops for CTA members to prepare for their retirement.

Please see the attached flyer.

The workshop is scheduled for 4:30pm to 6 pm Tuesday, Sept. 17, at the Santa Maria CTA Office, 2325 Skyway Dr., Ste. A.

Please DO NOT call the CTA office to register for this workshop.

You must contact STRS directly at their Call Center at 1-800-228-5453, Option 3.

You can also use that number to schedule an individual appointment with Ms. Hankins.

It is never too early to plan for your retirement! The more you know, the better you can prepare.


A few of you have called the STRS phone number to register for the workshop but have been told you cannot register yet.

I have contacted Andrew Oman about this communication problem.

At the bottom of the page you can do a search for Santa Maria in September 2019.

Hopefully that will work.

Sorry for the confusion.
