Membership Information

State Membership

For more info on Membership Dues, contact Advance CTE

States that receive funding from the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act (Perkins) are required to designate a state agency as its Perkins eligible agency. These eligible agencies, and their signees – the state directors - are eligible for this category of Advance CTE membership.

This is not an open membership and is not available to be selected as a membership option.

States are allowed to designate a single individual, the state director, to represent the state. This membership is transferable to the person assigned this responsibility in the state.
