Join Northwest Professional Educators
NWPE Professional Membership is $19.50 per month ($234 annually).

Members begin receiving benefits on the day they join.

Professional membership is open to any employee of an educational entity (e.g., teachers, para-professionals, counselors, school psychologists, speech-language pathologists, school and district administrators) in Idaho, Oregon and Washington.

Students who are working towards licensure or teacher certification, retired educators, and associate members may join at a reduced rate of $25 annually. Visit Member Benefits to learn more.

Independent contractors who are not eligible for professional membership can apply for private practice liability insurance after joining as an NWPE Associate/Support Member. Read more here.
