Benefits of Membership
Annual Membership Dates: September 1, of current year – August 31, of subsequent year
Purpose and Promise
The purpose of a non-profit, non-partisan, 501c(4) TPAU Membership Organization is ultimately to be a strong, unifying advocating body for Certified Educators (State Certified Teacher, State Certified Substitute Teacher, State Certified Principal, State Certified Assistant Principal, State Certified Superintendent, State Certified Assist Superintendent) which in turn benefits parents and the community. TPAU will advocate for Certified Educators as well as Parents, but have a major interest in increasing the function of the overall education system through Positive Education Change. All Membership Dues will go 51% toward helping Law, Statute, and Code-Abiding Candidates for School Board and 49% toward Educating the Public about all aspects of Education and Advocacy.
TPAU Membership Organization is comprised of professionals deeply interested in, and passionate about Positive Education. Through the strength of their numbers, TPAU Membership Organization will also provide a wealth of resources to their members. These resources and advocacy alone are perhaps reason enough to join the TPAU Membership Organization, since access to many wonderful tools would otherwise not be possible or cost- effective without us.
Join the Future of Teacher Associations Across the Country
Whether a Full Member or Associate Member, joining TPAU will bring many benefits by way of vendor discounts, the eventual offering of medical and dental insurance coverage, discounts on seminars, conferences, trainings, and TPAU merchandise. In addition to all of this, TPAU provides administrative due process representation and guidance, when needed.
TPAU is the best and most knowledgeable advocate for Certified Educators (Teachers, Admin, Substitute Teachers – Full Members), to have more autonomy in their Educator Profession. We will bridge the information gap between Educators and Parents for a more effective education for the children of the district. When there is frustration or misinformation on either side of the table, anger and dissatisfaction can occur. This is unnecessary as the laws and rights are very clear on both the Educator side and the Parent side.
As we say in our motto: “Better Together”.
