Mission Statement/Purpose of HSTA-Retired

August 28, 2011

A question recently arose from one of our HSTA-R members on what is our Mission Statement?

According to the Bylaws of the Hawaii State Teachers Association-Retired, Article II – Purpose:


HSTA-R shall strive to help its members achieve retirement with dignity, happiness, and economic security.  It shall:

A)      Promote the social, professional, and economic status and general welfare of retired members of HSTA;

B)     Furnish a practical basis for united action with others who are devoted to the cause of education;

C)     Promote voluntary participation by its members in civic and educational affairs;

D)     Initiate and support legislative action that is beneficial to retired public school teachers, and;

E)      Support HSTA and its programs.


Editor’s note:  I am glad this question was asked about our Mission Statement and/or purpose as it afforded me an opportunity to receive the bylaws of HSTA-R.

Should any members have additional questions please email me and I would be happy to research the answer for you.

Wayne “Big Dog” Joseph, President, HSTA-R, Hawai’i Island District
