Vote Now & Here’s How!

As an NCTE member, you can vote and make your voice heard on a new NCTE resolution — These tips and 5 minutes are all you need!


Recognizing Teacher Experts and Their Paths to Expertise

At the Annual Business Meeting at the NCTE Annual Convention in November 2019, the NCTE Committee on Resolutions presented a resolution to those in attendance. This resolution, “Recognizing Teacher Experts and Their Paths to Expertise,” was approved by members attending that meeting on November 22, 2019.



The NCTE Constitution requires these resolutions be presented to the entire membership for a ratification vote.



You can vote directly from the link on this web page. (If you’re reading this without having logged in to your NCTE account, you’ll be prompted to log in with your NCTE username and password.) This link was also shared with NCTE members via email on January 10 and January 31, and via social media and the INBOX newsletter.

Note that if you are an NCTE member who has never logged in before, you can log in using your member number as your username and your last name as your password.


Where can you find your member number? Your member number is the six digit number located above your name on your NCTE mailings. You can also log in to the website and visit the My Account section. Your membership number is listed on the “Account Information” tab.

You can also select the “I forgot my password” if you need help there.



Once logged in, read the Background, Resolved, and Pro/Con statement for this resolution, “Recognizing Teacher Experts and Their Paths to Expertise.” Then, cast your vote at the bottom of the resolution. The Pro/Con statement was provided by the NCTE Committee on Resolutions.

We hope you’ll exercise your right as an NCTE member to make your voice heard!
