The ACTE Retired Membership category is open to:

  • Individuals who are retired from active employment in CTE and have been an ACTE member for at least one year.
  • Note: Retired members cannot be employed either full or part time and must notify ACTE should they regain employment and renew at the Professional Membership rate.

Retired members pay just $31* in membership dues annually (that’s $49 off national ACTE dues) and receive reduced registration rates to CareerTech VISION and other ACTE events. Retired members receive approximately 50% off the regular attendee rate for VISION!

The all-new Retirees Advisory Group is ramping up several new opportunities — watch for ways to engage by:

  • Giving back to your profession by serving as a mentor.
  • Contributing to a quarterly newsletter for retired ACTE members.
  • Staying connected via new networking activities.
  • Presenting at events as a facilitator/moderator.

Tell us how ACTE can best serve you as a retired member by completing the google form. Questions? Contact Lisa Stange, (volunteer) Retirees Advisory Group coordinator at
