Dear Hilda:

Great question, Hilda. Before I respond to that question, let’s quickly revisit membership benefits:

  • Academies – These events include the Adobe Academy, Campus Technology Specialist Academy,  Chromebook Academy, System Administrator and Technical Support Conference, Technology Leadership Academy, and Productivity Tools for Administrators.

Register for Professional Development Sessions

  • When your district or organization purchases an on-site professional development session, session participants become members.

Take Advantage of Membership Options

  • Bulk Memberships Available – Campuses that purchase five or more individual memberships receive a discounted membership rate. To take advantage of these savings, complete the Bulk Membership Form.
  • Become a member yourself at incredible rates for regular, student, and retired educators.

The Short Answer

The short answer to your question, Hilda, is “Yes.” Attending the TCEA Tots and Technology Conference will renew access to all the wonderful benefits TCEA makes available to its members.
