NAPT State Affiliate Member Program

The NAPT Board of Directors is pleased to announce that state associations for pupil transportation can get more support from NAPT than ever – and – at lower prices, effective immediately!

Every state association for pupil transportation that affiliates with NAPT now has the option to host a webinar, create and lead workshops at the NAPT Summit, and even receive discounts on Summit registration. Your state association can also be an NAPT Education Partner, which means you can offer NAPT PDS classes to the members of your state association for less money and without burdensome administrative responsibilities. Finally, if you need or want us to help you with registration for your state conference or other local events, we can do that too. We think you’ll be pleased with your options, which are detailed below. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us here at HQ by dialing – toll free - (800) 989-NAPT (6278).


State Associations that are interested in affiliating with NAPT may do so for an annual fee of just $200, which entitles them to the following benefits:

• A display of their logo or official indicia (that can be hyperlinked to their primary website or another location of their choice on the World Wide Web) in the State Affiliate section of the NAPT website.
• An annual license to use a proprietary logo indicating their affiliation with NAPT.
• Up to four announcements (in the NAPT NewsBrief) of the date and location of their
annual meeting/conference or other state association events.
• Webinar Hosting – every state affiliate of NAPT may use NAPT information technology – with no additional charge - to offer one webinar to their membership. This includes FREE training for the moderator of the webinar. The webinar can be archived and provided to the state affiliate afterward in an electronic format so it can be made available again at any time.
• Unique workshops at the NAPT Summit – our state affiliates will be invited and encouraged to suggest and offer workshops at our annual conference.
• 50% Discount – on the price of registration for the annual NAPT Summit for up to 4 members of the state association Board of Directors.


For an additional fee, State Affiliate members of NAPT can also become an NAPT Education Partner by purchasing a license (or licenses) to offer NAPT PDS/SNT classes. The license will enable the course sponsor to offer the course without restriction on the number of attendees and with no obligation to collect money from them on behalf of NAPT. Please Note: Course sponsors may, at their discretion, choose to collect a course registration fee to recoup expenses, make a profit or both.

The fee structure is as follows:

1 or 2 courses - $750/each
3 courses - $700/each
4 or more courses - $600/each
PDS 101 and 502 (8 hour courses) - $1,050/each

Course content will not be distributed until the license fee is paid to NAPT. Instructors will be solicited by NAPT in accordance with NAPT’s instructor selection process, which is a competitive bid. If the NAPT Education Partner does not want to use any of the available NAPT PDS/SNT instructors, the NAPT Education Partner may use another instructor if he/she is approved beforehand as a Subject Matter Expert by the NAPT Professional Development Committee. An instructor application is available on the NAPT website.

The course sponsor must pay all expenses for the instructor with the exception of the instructor stipend, which will be paid by NAPT. Instructors will be provided with specific directions for collecting information (including course attendance) and are responsible for returning this information directly to NAPT. All materials must be returned to NAPT before the instructor will receive his/her stipend from NAPT. NAPT Education Partners will be required to announce and advertise a course offering by email using a template provided by NAPT; NAPT will also announce and advertise every course offering in its publications.

PDS/SNT course attendees may pre-register and pay in advance to receive a course completion certificate directly from NAPT. This will relieve our Education Partners of a financial burden and allow NAPT to more accurately and efficiently update our member’s Professional Development profile in the NAPT Member portal.


Finally, State Affiliates of NAPT can also purchase meeting registration and logistics support that includes online registration with multiple payment options (including electronic funds transfer) and reports that track registration by type and date submitted. If a state affiliate is willing to use the NAPT registration template, the fee is $1,500. The fee for the more detailed customized registration ranges from $2,500 to $4,000, depending on the staff time involved.
