Membership and Benefits

How to Become a Member:


The Tennessee Education Association (TEA) works to promote, advance and protect public education, the education profession and the rights and interests of our members. By joining, you are making the most important investment of your professional career. 


Join Today!
It's easy. You can join on-line today. Select your membership type from the list and click “More” to complete the enrollment form. You may also download the membership form, fill it out, print and sign it and give it to your local Association Representative in your building. If you have any trouble, please contact TEA Membership Coordinator, Shannon Bain, or your TEA/NEA UniServ Coordinator.



Student TEA (STEA) members get extra professional development plus interaction with colleagues that help them succeed. Membership includes the benefits of both the NEA and STEA. Dues amounts depend on your college or university. (When you identify your school during the on-line enrollment process, your dues will be calculated - $25.00 plus local dues, if any.) Online enrollment will take you briefly to the NEA website.
