Map Out the Future of ATPE: Use your educator voice during the ATPE House of Delegates, when delegates will approve ATPE’s legislative program and elect the 2023-24 state officers. 

Take Pride in Our Successes: Be inspired by the educational and leadership accomplishments of outstanding ATPE members. 

Chart New Paths: Expand your mind with curated professional learning sessions providing an opportunity to earn up to seven hours of continuing professional education (CPE) credit. 

Explore ATPE’s Membership Benefits: Learn the latest about ATPE’s membership offerings and strategies you can use in your school district to strengthen the association’s voice. 

Say “Hakuna Matata”: We all know it means “no worries,” and Kalahari is an excellent place to take it easy. The resort features America’s largest indoor waterpark, themed escape rooms, and 80,000 square feet of attractions and activities at Tom Foolery’s Adventure Park!
