PENC thrives on empowering all North Carolina educators throughout their careers for the betterment of our students and the teaching profession.
PENC serves as an affordable and viable alternative to other professional organizations in North Carolina. And, PENC remains nonpartisan, independent and state-based, with member dues remaining in North Carolina as we work to promote quality education reform.
Professional Educators of North Carolina is a professional organization that serves as THE voice for educators in policy-making, the forum for developing professional relationships and the advocate for improving the learning environment for every educator and student.
Our mission is to promote education reform for the benefit of all North Carolina children while ensuring the recruitment, development and retention of qualified educators.
While we are a member of a nationwide coalition of independent associations, our focus is on education issues having an impact in North Carolina.
Member dues remain in North Carolina and are used to support member services and education initiatives.
While we neither endorse nor contribute to political campaigns, we work with all education policymakers to ensure quality education reform.
We believe educators should enjoy the best services and benefits at a reasonable cost. We continually strive to make protection and involvement accessible to all educators.
“I so appreciate your response to my question and am most impressed with the rapid response your organization provided. Good customer service is a rare thing these days, so I applaud you and your team for doing what you promise and doing it so pleasantly!”
“I want to thank PENC for your support and for helping me feel that everything will work out. Your calm advice and reassurance helped me to weather my storm. In my humble opinion, as my students would say, you ROCK! Thank you more than I can express with my rather advanced vocabulary.”
“You were very instrumental in the outcome of my issue at school. I followed all of your advice. My principal sent a letter to the parent who threatened me and since then I have received a call from the mother with an apology. The dues I pay PENC are worth every penny knowing I have some support.”
