Change How You Pay Your Dues
Current members can click here to quickly change the way you pay for your membership. You can automatically deduct your dues from your checking account over the membership year beginning in October or pay via credit card. It is safe and secure, and only takes a few minutes to switch. 

Aspiring Educators
Student TEA (STEA) members get extra professional development and 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 online enrollment process, your dues will be calculated - $25.00 plus local dues, if any.) Online enrollment will take you briefly to the NEA website.
