What do you get for your membership dues?
Access to our top-notch legal team. Our in-house attorneys and our statewide network of supporting law firms know Texas education law. No matter where you are in Texas when you need us, you’ll have a qualified, experienced attorney at your side.*
Insurance. You insure your home and your vehicle because you can’t afford the hit to your bank account should the unthinkable happen. Our extensive coverage gives you the liability insurance and insurance and employment rights defense coverage you need to protect the investment you’ve made in your career.
Influence at the Capitol. ATPE’s experienced lobbyists are nonpartisan and focus only on public education in Texas. During every legislative session, we’re fighting for—or against—as many as 1,000 legislative bills that could affect your career! We actively seek member feedback and provide opportunities for you to get involved and effect change.
Outstanding benefits and resources. You can save more than the cost of your dues on member discounts such as classroom supplies, prescriptions, life insurance, automotive maintenance, and more. Plus, we offer 24/7 access to FREE online continuing education opportunities, webinars, and career resources.
