Join the NTPA Board

Are you interested in supporting the test prep profession through leadership and non-profit service? The NTPA is always looking for highly qualified and motivated additions to our Board of Directors.

Minimum Qualifications for Board Nominees

  • NTPA member in good standing
  • At least five years of experience as a test prep educator or administrator
  • At least six months of activity on an NTPA committee/organizational function in the past 24 months (leadership roles preferred)

If accepted to the Board, you’ll share in the responsibility of being part of a team that steers our organization. 
Initial Board terms run for a full two years and entail a substantial time commitment, all done on a volunteer basis.
Onboarding may include time to acclimate to your new role with an overlap with the current board member you are replacing.
Note that only one representative (owner/employee/contractor) of a company may serve on the Board at a time.
