Call 352-787-2050 to check your membership status.

We could tell you dozens of stories from just the past two years of teachers who never signed up for their union or they thought they were members. They would ask for help because they were in a situation where their certificate was at risk. It happens way more than you would think, and with all the new state laws don't put membership off.
