The Value of Being an Educational Institute Member
Keeping current in an ever-changing world is an ongoing challenge. ACTE can help! To be successful in today’s global society, educational institutions must be up to date with information, classroom tools and equipment that help teachers provide top-of-the-line programs and resources.

ACTE works on a daily basis to ensure that career and technical institutions have the policy support and funding they need to offer high-quality programs that will help them achieve their goals.

This membership category is available for any school district, technical and career center, curriculum center, community college or university. Institutions can join at different levels and enjoy benefits that match their level of support.
