How many members can we have?
Each institution is allowed to have an unlimited number of MACTE members, but AACTE guidelines limits how many VOTING members each institution is allowed. The number of voting members is determined by how many Title II program completers your institution reported to DESE during the previous academic year. Regarding voting members, the following guidelines apply: Regular Memberships: 3 voting members 1 additional voting member for each 100 program completers Unlimited non-voting members Associate Memberships: 1 voting member 1 additional voting member for each 100 program completers Unlimited non-voting members
Each institution will need to refer to their Title II report from the previous year to determine the number of voting members. If DESE can provide MACTE with a list, it will be posted on the MACTE website. Please be sure to list your voting members on your membership application.
Can I attend the fall and spring meetings if I am not a member?
Yes, non-members are allowed to attend the fall and spring meeting, and are allowed to attend the DESE pre-conference workshop. However, because membership fees help support conference expenses, we strongly encourage everyone who wants to attend the fall and spring meetings to join MACTE. This will ensure a strong financial base for MACTE which will allow us to continue offering high quality meetings.
Do I have to join a List Serv? How do I get started if I do join one?
MACTE uses list serv’s to assist members in communicating with each other. MACTE now has 5 list serv’s to better serve the membership: MACTE – All, Field Experiences, Community Colleges, Deans/Unit Leaders and Assessment Directors. If you indicate on your membership form that you would like to be enrolled in one or more list serv, you will receive an email confirming your enrollment and providing instructions to get started. If you are already a member of that list serv, please mark it and your membership will continue.
