Is anyone a member? I am thinking of joining...Is it worth $80?

If you teach math it is definitely worth joining! It's a great resource and I love the magazine I get!
Awesome, thanks for the feedback!
What exactly are the benefits of joining NCTM? I can join for $40 since I'm still a student. How often are the Mathematics Teacher journals published?
Journals, scholarships/grants, activities, resources, plus many other benefits...plus it looks good on a resume!
I don't know about NCTM but if it's anything like NCTE (for ELA teachers) it's well worth it!
Professional organizations can be great because they keep you current with national trends. I am a member of NCSST, and I absolutely love their professional publication!
if you keep your eyes open, they sometimes do 2 for 1 deals...my friend and I were able to join at the same time for the $80, and we both get the magazines and the online privileges. It is pretty awesome!
I think it's worth it, but like many things you'll get out of it what you put into it.

Definitely worth it.
On a side note-I know the new NTCM president!!!!
