At the 2021 NAAE Convention in New Orleans this past year, the delegates representing the state ag teacher’s associations voted to increase the NAAE active membership dues by $5.00 beginning in the 2022-2023 NAAE membership year. As you prepare to collect dues for the upcoming year, please make sure your state has made the necessary adjustments for the increase. The NAAE Bylaws also states that the Life Active dues will be twelve times (12x) active dues so therefore the new Life Active dues will increase to $780.00. Click here to access the official NAAE Dues Increase Letter to State Leaders, which was sent on April 29, 2022.
Please submit your 2022-2023 NAAE State Officer Roster by September 1, 2022. This state officer roster will include information for your new officer team for the 2022-2023 membership year. This year, we are moving to an online State Officer Roster system for greater efficiency. We realize that many of you will not have elected these officers yet, so we ask that the new and incoming president for 2022-2023 completes this form. NAAE cannot do a good job serving your state association and the membership at large if we don’t know who the state leaders are, so please provide all information that is requested.
