ACTE Membership

National ACTE Student Membership



Students pursuing CTE careers need the support system, expertise and resources available in a membership organization from the earliest stages of their careers. Make sure you get the extra assistance that will not only help you excel in the classroom, but for years to come, with a free national ACTE student membership

For the national student membership, ACTE defines a student as an individual who is enrolled as a full-time student preparing to become a career and technical educator and who is not employed full time in the education system as a teacher, counselor or administrator. Student members will receive their benefits electronically, including Techniques, and will not receive the accidental death and dismemberment insurance.

Only national ACTE membership is free; students are encouraged to join their state associations. Students in unified states are required to join their state, along with any corresponding state division fees for unified states for their membership to be processed.
