Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to be a delegate member (tech director) in order purchase the Premier membership? No.
Must all members of a system choose the same membership type? No. Each person can use the best plan for them.
What if I’ve already paid my 2019 membership? If you’ve already paid, you will get a $25 discount off of the Premier price.
If I choose Premier Member, will I still have to register for events? Yes, just so we can do your name badge. You will choose the $0 Premier Member option that will be presented.
What if I can’t attend the Fall Symposium? Notify us in advance and we will refund you the $150 Premier member rate. Note that no refunds will be given for other events.
If I don’t choose Premier, will I still be able to register for Fall and other events? Absolutely, but Premier members will be able to register first. Registration fees for Basic Members are shown in the table above.
Why should I choose Premier? One purchase order per year instead of three or four. Streamlined event registration. Lower overall cost. Access to a mentor for delegate members.
Delegate Membership. Individuals serving as the District Technology Coordinator (or equivalent) shall represent an Alabama public school system. Delegate members are voting members of the organization. Delegate Members are eligible to hold office and represent a region on the ALET Board.
Technology Leadership Team Membership. Individuals who are employees of public or private school systems (PK-12) who wish to promote the mission of the ALET organization. Technology Leadership Team Members may hold office or represent a region only if they had previously done so. (Example: An individual had once been a Delegate member, was elected and served as a Board member and/or Officer, but is now categorized as a Leadership Team Member.)
Associate Membership. Individuals who are employees of colleges or universities, non-profit groups, public libraries, or other educational entities who wish to promote the mission of the ALET organization.
Honorary Membership. Past Delegate or Tech Leadership Team members who have retired from the educational system may obtain Honorary Membership. Honorary members are not required to pay dues. Honorary membership is not automatic and must be approved by the ALET Executive Committee.
