Membership Has Its Rewards
So, what value does a yearly membership with CETPA provide to you? Following are just a few of the many important advantages you receive as a paid member. In addition, new benefits will emerge as we move forward!
Access to the EdTech Listserv - THE most active and productive e-mail list serve solely devoted to California K-20 education.
Get information on the hottest topics and best practices - through the DataBus Magazine. Only members receive access to the archives and special online only articles.
Access to CETPA's powerful consortium buying power - which has already brought to California technical professional development from Nimbus for just $175 per user per year.
- Access to the CTO Mentor Program - where up and coming technology directors can enhance their skills and become the top-tier leaders in California educational organizations.
- Networking and saving money - on the annual conference and other events that give you the power of face-to-face interaction with your counterparts. We happen to think they are pretty smart!
The Change to Paid Memberships
CETPA has been the leader in California educational technology leadership for over 50 years, setting the standard for best practices and policies that support public education through high-quality professional development and effective advocacy, communication and collaboration.
With the increased pace at which technology is changing, so must CETPA change as an organization. To better serve our members and provide relevant services and resources, CETPA has transitioned from a free membership to a paid one.
We have built the new membership fee right in to the cost of the annual conference, so if you are coming to the conference in November, you need not do anything more to continue to enjoy the benefits of CETPA membership!
Current unpaid members will retain all of the benefits of membership through December 1, 2011. For those unable to join us in Long Beach this year, read below to find out which membership is right for you...
