NAPE offers two types of membership: state and affiliate.
State-level membership may be granted to any state agency responsible for administering Perkins-allocated funds for leadership, technical assistance, and professional development about equity issues in education related to workforce development, including CTE.
- State-level dues are based on each state’s Perkins allocation.
- Each State Member designates a voting representative to serve on the Board of Directors and as a primary contact person.
- All agency staff will have access to the website resources.
Affiliate membership may be granted to local and community agencies, organizations, and businesses within a member state (Level I) or nonmember states (Level II) and all national organizations that wish to partner with NAPE to promote equity in education and the workforce. See if your state is a NAPE member.
