ACTI members are leaders in thinking and adoption of advanced core technologies. ACTI membership is open to all EDUCAUSE members, including organizations that function as units under an EDUCAUSE member (such as state education networks that are technically part of a university system).

Although membership is institutional, participants generally fall into either or both of two categories: professionals working directly on core technologies, and IT managers and leaders responsible for allocating resources and making other relevant institutional choices. ACTI members are active participants, engaged in both initiative-wide discussions and in ACTI working groups.
