Association of Texas Professional Educators

Find ATPE in Your Area

One of the 10 official ATPE tenets, as adopted by the ATPE Board of Directors, is member-owned, member-governed. Members are the lifeblood of this association. They keep ATPE strong through their volunteer service at the state, region and local unit levels and by participating in the annual meeting of the ATPE House of Delegates. Educators are encouraged to take their ATPE memberships to the next level by pursuing volunteer/leadership opportunities through ATPE.

ATPE State Committees

Members may volunteer to serve on nine standing committees that make recommendations to the ATPE Board of Directors and ATPE House of Delegates, as well as volunteer to serve on five special committees that primarily select award recipients.

ATPE Regions

ATPE’s 20 regions correspond to the boundaries of the 20 Texas Education Agency regions. Each ATPE member is a member of the region in which he or she is employed. Every ATPE region has an elected officer corps that:

  • Supports the local units within the region.
  • Assists in the establishment of new local units.
  • Relays information between the state office and the local units.
  • Promotes the ATPE Summit among local units.

ATPE Local Units

ATPE has almost 500 active local units statewide, accounting for the majority of ATPE’s membership. ATPE’s local units expedite membership recruitment campaigns and provide ATPE members with:

  • A professional presence at the school district level.
  • A setting for interaction with colleagues.
  • A liaison to the state office.
  • An opportunity to attend ATPE’s annual Summit as voting delegates.

If you are an ATPE member interested in volunteering for your local unit, email your local president and let them know. If you are considering a more involved role, such as an elected officer or a campus representative, see ATPE Local Unit Volunteer Roles for more information.

Several of our local units have created their own websites:
