A New Way to Be an Education Advocate

As an ATPE-PAC Diplomat, you’ll be the source of PAC information for your local unit, and you’ll be eligible to win free ATPE swag and gift cards to popular stores and restaurants. Plus, you will have a chance to attend a VIP breakfast alongside the GR team at summit.
What is ATPE-PAC?
ATPE-PAC is ATPE’s legislative fundraising arm. The PAC enables individuals with limited resources to combine their financial contributions to achieve greater impact. ATPE-PAC funds are used in a targeted, effective manner to support pro-public education candidates and officeholders.
What do ATPE-PAC Diplomats do?
As an ATPE-PAC Diplomat, you will be the face of ATPE-PAC in your local unit. Your goals will be to:
  • Raise awareness of ATPE-PAC throughout your local unit
  • Energize supporters and help increase donations
  • Work closely with local leaders to increase the number of PAC donors from your local unit
  • Serve as a PAC liaison for your local unit
  • Distribute PAC materials like fliers, envelopes, and brochures at local unit meetings
  • Serve as the conduit for information related to PAC programs, awards, campaigns, and fundraisers for your local unit

Hello I have been a ATPE member for many years and have always donated or bought items. I have never received my first pin for giving over $150. I have always looked forward to that pin and I’m disappointed that after all these years and all the money I have poured into pac, which is very hard for a person that lives check to check, that this has not happened. I love what y’all do and thank you for all your hard work.
