ITEEA offers two main types of Individual Membership:
Professional (includes Professional Electronic, Advocate; and in some states, Unified) and Student.
Professional Members join for a variety of reasons but a recent Membership Survey indicated that the top reasons our members join are:
- To stay abreast of the latest trends in the field
- Attend and/or present at the ITEEA Annual Conference
- Network with like-minded individuals
- To be affiliated with THE organization that supports their profession
Student Members are college/university undergraduates who join to learn about the profession and network with their peers. All student members are automatically enrolled into the ITEEA Technology and Engineering Education Collegiate Council (TEECA), the largest single body of pre-service TEE teachers in the nation—consisting of undergraduate student organization chapters and individual members—whose purpose is to promote leadership, fellowship, scholarship, and a philosophical foundation for future technology and engineering teachers. TEECA holds a number of coordinated activities at the chapter, state, regional, and international level. TEECA Brochure - College Survival Kit
