2021-2022 Membership Information

Effective July 1, 2021, Educators Rising will be changing the dues collection process at the national level. To simplify the process of joining both the state and the national program, the national office will now add state dues onto the national membership for all who join. The state dues will be paid directly to the national office and will be remitted back to the states on a quarterly schedule. This change will allow chapters to create one invoice for all fees associated with Educators Rising.  

Use this LINK to the national Educators Rising website to complete your membership.

  • Deadline to complete membership payment: February 1, 2022.
