Membership in the State CAPE Network is open to organizations that are representative of the diversity of private schools within the state, have as their members private school organizations or individual private schools, and fulfill all other requirements of membership. State CAPE affiliates meet twice each year to network, discuss matters of common concern, provide opportunities for professional growth, obtain information about national trends and issues, and (in March) engage in direct discussions with the CAPE Board. State CAPE Network representatives select one of their members to represent the state perspective on the CAPE Board of Directors.
