Benefits of NEA/CTA Membership
YOU WILL MAKE POSITIVE CHANGES FOR YOUR STUDENTS AND YOUR PROFESSION.
All members have the right to participate in the decision-making process of our local, state and national associations. Together, we decide the issues we will champion, such as improving the quality of education for our students and working conditions for educators in schools and colleges.
With CTA, you are guaranteed a strong and credible voice with your local school district and in public policy discussions to advance legislation and policies that benefit our students, public education and the middle class.
YOU WILL BECOME A BETTER TEACHER AND BE AWARDED FOR INNOVATION.
Whether it’s attending one of CTA’s annual conferences, participating in some of the many trainings or workshops offered throughout the year, or learning from the true experts in the field – your colleagues, you will have access to a wealth of practical information and resources to improve your professional skills and be the best educator you can be.
And what if you have an innovative idea for your students, but need a little financial help to get it off the ground? CTA can help you bring your idea to life through a grant from CTA’s Institute For Teaching.
YOU WILL MAKE YOUR COMMUNITY AND THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE.
CTA members have a long history of social justice advocacy, such as fighting for universal free public schools for all California students, standing up for civil and human rights, and securing protections against arbitrary or unfair treatment of educators. Your membership in the union supports a more just, equitable community, state and world…and helps build a brighter future for all of us.
