Example of a Professional
My career field is English, and more specifically, the teaching of
English. As such, I am a member of the NCTE, or the National Council of
Teachers of English. I pay a small yearly fee as my "dues," and in
return, I get a quarterly publication about research/advancements in the
teaching of English and I attend a yearly educational conference to both hear
presentations and network.
If you are unsure of what a professional organization/association
"looks like," check out the NCTE website.
