Why renew early?

  • You’ll check an item off your ever-growing back-to-school to-do list.
  • If you haven’t already, it’s a good time to switch to paying your dues via credit card or bank draft. Auto-renew and installment payments are available—as well as discounted dues for professional and associate members—when you choose these payment methods!

  • First-time professional membership (available until October 31, 2021): $110
  • Professional membership: $139 when you pay dues by credit card, bank draft, or check; $175 when you pay dues by payroll deduction
  • Associate membership (including para-educators): $80 when you pay dues by credit card, bank draft, or check; $90 when you pay dues by payroll deduction
  • Administrator membership (principals, assistant superintendents, superintendents): $225
  • When you join or renew online, you’ll also have the option to pay local unit dues if your district has an active local unit.

As an ATPE member, you’ll enjoy:

  • The peace of mind that comes from legal resources*, including up to $8 million in professional liability insurance; extensive employment rights defense insurance that's guaranteed, win or lose; and access to a team of staff attorneys who may help eligible members with job-related legal concerns
  • A respected voice at the Capitol in both Austin and D.C.
  • Professional growth through curated professional learning and leadership programs, including 24/7 access to 90+ hours of online continuing professional education (CPE)
