Our mission as COREA celebrates our 50th year in 2024, is dedicated to pursuing excellence in education by supporting educators whose work makes a profound and positive impact on the children of New Mexico, community engagement and protection of retiree benefits.

Our vision is to provide a setting where members can exchange ideas, strategies, and encouragement in the pursuit of improving and supporting education, the community, and the membership.

The strength of our organization is our diverse members that bring a wealth of knowledge. We are community-minded, and we support educators and the community. We strongly believe that we need to create a positive organization that works together for the greater good. Our monthly luncheon meetings will include a variety restaurants and occasional speakers that meet the needs of our membership. For our members that don't have access, we will keep them informed by telephone and/or mail.

As we reflect on the character of our community and the challenges we're facing, we believe that we will emerge stronger. Our diverse membership includes: teachers/administrators/higher education professionals, nurses, teacher assistants, counselors, librarians, secretaries, custodians, cafeteria and maintenance personnel. We invite retirees from Santa Fe, Pecos, Pojoaque and the surrounding area to join us.

Please contact the President or the Membership Chairs for more information.
