Institutional Joint Membership

This membership is held by the school building / institution and not by individuals or School District. When information is sent to the designated contact person, they relay it to the appropriate teacher. For example, when the conference information for mathematics is received it is forwarded to three teachers of interest, the science information received and forwarded to the same three teachers OR other teachers with science interest, and the social studies information received and forwarded to the same teachers OR other teachers with social study interest. This gives the opportunity for the information to be shared between eighteen different teachers.

The membership also provides:

  • Privileges to be transferred to different individuals within the building
    E-mail notification to the contact person when the associations Newsletters and/or Journals are online. The contact person can then relay on to any three individuals of its availability
  • Teachers to get membership privileges for all six organizations
  • Registration at member rate for each association’s conference for up to three individuals
