Premier Active Membership
Premier active membership is open to any practicing New Jersey school administrator or supervisor. Premier members are entitled to all NJPSA services and benefits. These include legal services, negotiations and field representation, association paid insurance, professional development services, publications, and much more.
Associate members are those who are not practicing school administrators or supervisors, but who engage in educational pursuits. An associate member may include college or university professors. This is an excellent, cost-effective way to stay in the mainstream of the educational community.
Membership is open to any educator practicing in a New Jersey school district who is not currently serving in a school administrator or supervisory capacity. Aspiring administrator members are not eligible to hold office or vote. Aspiring members are permitted to serve on standing committees as non-voting members. Aspiring members would not be permitted to serve as a committee chair.

Many services can automatically continue, and others are available for a fee. Lifetime membership is open to retired members with five years of uninterrupted membership. The fee is paid once.
