Standing and special committees

Get involved in shaping ATPE’s future

Any member can volunteer to serve on an ATPE standing or special committee. These committees meet annually in Austin to offer input on member services, prepare business for the ATPE House of Delegates and select award recipients.
The ATPE state president recommends members to serve on state committees each summer, and the ATPE Board of Directors reviews those recommendations at its August meeting.
  • Bylaws—Seven members meet in the spring to propose amendments to the ATPE State Bylaws.
  • Leader Development—Members meet in the fall to review and make recommendations regarding association programs related to the identification, recruitment, training, maintenance, and recognition of ATPE's volunteer leader corps.
  • Legislative—Twenty members (one per region) meet in the spring to review the ATPE Legislative Program and to propose positions to present to the Texas Legislature, U.S. Congress, boards and agencies.
