Find your NCTE Affiliate

The National Council of Teachers of English welcomes you into a community of educators whose devotion, inspiration, determination, and uniqueness come together to make a difference. When you join your local NCTE Affiliate you’ll find the connections and tools you need to be innovative, creative, and inventive as you work to connect with each of your students.

Sometimes you may simply need a quick idea to get your class started; sometimes you want to take a step back and re-vision how learning takes place; and sometimes you just need to know you are not completely on your own—when you join your local affiliate you’ll have access to local professional development opportunities, listservs, newsletters, journals, and, most importantly, the collected wisdom of many of the best teachers in the field.

Your local affiliate is working to improve the teaching and learning of English language arts directly in your community. Please join us in our effort as we think globally and act locally.

JOIN by contacting your affiliate using the information listed below OR download and print the PDF version of the Affiliate Membership Enrollment Form.
