Please note, for 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. While national ACTE membership is free, we at ACTE encourage
students to join their state ACTE associations. Students in unified states
are required to join their state association in order for their membership to be processed.
