At ARHME, when it comes to dealing with elected and appointed officials, our strength is in our membership numbers. We are beginning a new member enrollment drive and need your help to reach out and recruit new members.  We currently have over 900 members, but this represents only about 10% of the service retirees, beneficiaries and surviving spouses, and disabled retirees who are eligible to join to become active members of ARHME.  The new member drive includes a rewards program to recognize members who recruit 5 or more new members to ARHME.  The attached flyer explains the program in detail.  The program is being coordinated by board member Joyce Bethany, whose contact information is below. Thank you.

There is strength in numbers… At each bi-annual membership meeting, a member recruiting the most members for that period (a minimum of five new members) will select a recruitment gift from the items listed below.

  • 4 tickets to the ARHME Social

  • $100 gift Card

  • A Massage Envy full body massage

  • 2 Personalized Yeti cups

  • Dinner for you and the new members you have recruited ($200 value and $30 for each additional recruit after 5)

  • 2 free nights at the Downtown Hyatt Regency

Currently there are no membership dues!

We have your best interest when it comes to securing your Retirement Benefits. Join us in making ARHME Stronger.

Let us recruit as many new members (retired, surviving spouses and deferred City of Houston Municipal Employees) as we can.

Need additional information? Please contact Joyce J. Bethany at or 713-729-1768.


All HMEPS retirees and spouses are welcome to join a group of fellow retirees and spouses who meet for lunch the first Saturday of every month. The group meets at the Luby's restaurant at 1414 Waugh Drive at 11 a.m. for fun and conversation. For more information, please contact Era Bell Inglis at 713-697-0317.
