Association Membership

Free vs Paid Membership

As a teacher who is a member of the BCTF, if you attended our last conference a one year active membership in the BCAEA is automatically conferred. A BCTF member who didn’t attend the conference can still pay the annual fee to join and receive full membership in the PSA, while non-BCTF members can also pay to  join and receive associate membership.
