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 with 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’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.
