Key Responsibilities of a Membership Contact:

Membership processing is a continuous job to maintain accurate membership information for the local chapter and CTA.  A local chapter’s Membership Contact assists the local with these responsibilities:

  • Work with site representatives in communicating with, recruiting, and maintaining members
  • Work with site representatives in distributing membership materials, such as membership cards and enrollment forms
  • Promote local, CTA & NEA member benefits
  • Facilitate in membership engagement activities
  • Help communication between local, CTA, and school district to resolve membership issues

By maintaining accurate and updated member information, your local chapter and CTA can effectively communicate with members about events, benefits, educational issues, and political activities.
