… About the NSTA Website
(For questions about the National Science Teachers Association, Student Achievement in Science Education, America’s Science Teachers, Science Education in the Classroom, and Science Education Policy, see this NSTA FAQ page. For questions about your membership, see this Membership FAQ page.)
If you don't find an answer to your website question here, feel free to contact us.
Does NSTA have a job bank?
Yes. Employers can post job openings in the online Career Center (careers.nsta.org). There is a fee for this service. Job seekers (NSTA members and nonmembers alike) can browse the listings for free.
How do I post an announcement?
It depends on the type of announcement. If you are advertising an event (including competitions, grants, and other programs with deadlines), go to our online Calendar (www.nsta.org/calendar). In the left column you’ll find the link “Submit an event.” Click on the link, fill out the form, and submit it. Your submission will be reviewed by NSTA staff and posted. NSTA reserves the right to edit the submission for length or clarity, and to reject inappropriate submissions.
If you would like to make a general announcement to the science education community, you can post a message to the Public Announcements forum in the online Discussion Board. To do this you must be registered on the board—your NSTA member login will not work.
Do you accept advertising on your website?
No, we do not. We do, however, offer advertising opportunities in our e-newsletters. See the Exhibits and Advertising area for details.
How do I get permission to link to a page on the NSTA website?
You may create links to any page on this website without receiving prior permission. You may not, however, use the link to place an NSTA page within a page on your website that uses “frames.”
I've forgotten my member ID number. Can you send it to me?
Go to www.nsta.org/password.aspx (this link is also available on pages where a login is required). Naturally, this method works only if we have your e-mail address on file.
You can also get your NSTA member ID from your journal mailing label, but you'll have to do some surgery:
Some of our members have IDs that are not six digits long. If there are more (or less) than seven nonzero digits in the number on your mailing label, ignore the leading zeroes and the final digit.
Finally, you can call us at (800) 722-NSTA / (703) 243-7100; or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can institutional members of NSTA view pages that are restricted to “members only”?
Currently, NSTA institutional membership is structured such that only one person per membership has access to members-only content on our website and receives the 20% discount in our online store. That person is the individual whose name appears as the institution’s contact in the member record. Call or e-mail NSTA Member Services to determine who this is or to designate a contact person - phone: (800) 722-NSTA / (703) 243-7100; e-mail: email@example.com.
For elementary schools wishing to allow multiple teachers at the same school or from within the same district to be able to access members-only content and resources, please click to the Science Alliance page to learn about our newest participation category for elementary educators, with all the benefits of electronic NSTA membership for up to five teachers and one administrator for only $100.
Where can I find information about NSTA's conferences (or meetings)?
NSTA holds four large professional gatherings per year: one national conference in the spring and three regional conferences in the fall. There is a link on the NSTA home page, “NSTA Conferences,” that will take you to the conferences area. (NSTA generally does not use the term “meeting” to refer to its conferences. However, conferences held prior to spring 2006 were called “conventions.”)
