The Congress of Houston Teachers has served HISD educators since 1954. If you are new to HISD or a current employee of the district who is not a member of CHT, we invite you to join. CHT provides HISD teachers a valuable service at a very reasonable cost especially when compared to other teacher organizations.
Why join CHT?
CHT is a local professional association that has represented HISD educators for more than 60 years.
CHT dues are only $129 per year. CHT members save hundreds of dollars in dues each year compared to members of other teacher groups who are required to join state and national organizations and pay dues to support political efforts.
CHT membership includes professional liability insurance coverage. No educator should be without this important protection. A summary of the insurance policy is posted here.
CHT represents you and is your voice at several monthly meetings with the HISD administration and school board. CHT staff is available to respond to your phone calls and e-mails, meet with you, and represent you when necessary.
CHT provides timely updates and useful information online at www.CHT.org and via periodic e-mail alerts.
CHT hosts general meetings throughout the school year covering topics of interest to HISD educators.
CHT awards scholarships each spring to members who are continuing their professional education as well as to the children of CHT members who are entering or already attending college.
