Best advice I can give is to find out which one is strongest in your district and join that one. |
TCTA has only mail in registration in my district. No service reps that makes visits. ATPE does. A district next door DOES have TCTA service reps that makes visits.
Every district has an association that is stronger and better serviced.
The previous poster "Bob" got it right.
Also, if you join ATPE and have a conflict with an administrator. Chances are the district will provide the admin with legal advice and not ATPE. Your admin would use ATPE (if a member) if you sued him/her directly. Chances of that happening is very little because you would also be advised to sue the district and the district would also financially support the admin unless they fired that person.
In short, ATPE is not in conflict of interest. That is all paranoia. Don't believe it.
BTW I'm a member of ATPE and UEA. I have no ill will on TCTA. Other than a mailer sent directly to my house, there is no contact in my district. They do, however, service my next door district well.
