How Do I Know If My Membership Is Current?

CATE Members:

Membership number and expiration date are found above your name on the mailing label of California English. If you haven’t received a copy of California English in the last four months and your address has not changed, chances are your membership has expired.

NCTE membership is NOT the same as CATE membership.
