Thank You for a Successful Summit!
The 2016 ATPE Summit exceeded expectations! We hope you make plans to join us again (or for the first time) next summer. In addition to hearing inspiring speakers, learning new leadership skills, and dancing the night away at our epic dance party, voting members at the House of Delegates (HOD) made decisions that will guide our association into the future. Below are a few highlights from bylaws amendments that delegates passed:
- An annual dues increase will be implemented for professional and associate members to ensure ATPE can continue offering the best benefits program in Texas.
- A new administrator membership category will apply to principals; assistant, deputy, and area superintendents; and superintendents.
- Candidates for state office will be required to have served as a local unit or region leader at least once in the last five years.
Two prefiled resolutions were passed. One establishes a recruitment reward program for retirees and another states that the ATPE Board of Directors will consider submitting a 2017 bylaws amendment to the ATPE Bylaws Committee that would allow ATPE ambassadors to serve as voting delegates at the HOD.
