In order to streamline state-level dues processing, Ohio ACTE will be collecting only state dues. This change will allow Ohio ACTE to focus resources on advocacy efforts and professional benefits rather than administrative processes. To ensure membership is updated in real time, you can also join each organization separately, especially if you need immediate access to discounted membership events/products in order to register at the member rate.
