NCACTE sponsors two conferences for the membership each year. The Spring Teacher Education Forum (watch for the registration form). This symposium focuses upon relevant topics in North Carolina teacher education and features prominent national and state speakers including personnel from the NC Department of Public Instruction. The Spring Conference is held in rotating locations across the state. The Annual Fall NC Teacher Education Conference held in Raleigh, is a two-day conference that focuses upon collaboration among the members. National and state speakers highlight the program that also features research presentations in concurrent sessions by members. Luncheons are highlighted by a presentation by the NC Teacher of the Year and a Representative from the NC Department of Public Instruction.

MEMBERSHIP in the NCACTE includes the faculty within private and public institutions and public agencies across North Carolina that foster teacher education. Dues are paid annually by each member institution, and therefore, all faculty who are involved in teacher education are automatically members. The college/university membership includes not only faculty in education units, but also those who are involved in the specialty and content areas. Persons involved in teacher education support agencies also are members, as well as staff in related organizations. If your organization is interested in joining NCACTE, there is also a one-time $100 joining fee. Please review our Constitutionto learn more about our structure and governance.
