VAEE Individual Memberships
Becoming a member of VAEE provides the following benefits:
VAEE is the professional organization for environmental educators in the state. As Virginia's official affiliate to the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE), VAEE offers its members opportunities to network with environmental educators from across the commonwealth, the country, and the world.
Every year VAEE conducts the Virginia Environmental Education Conference. The 2-3 day conference schedule is supercharged with professional workshops, a variety of concurrent sessions, networking social, scholarship auction, exciting keynote speakers, and engaging field trips that cover a range of topics.
After receiving membership feedback, VAEE is moving from a regional model to a sectional model based on the Virginia Department of Education's regional map. It is important for us to have equitable representation statewide, therefore we are seeking to develop a group that can support the transition of the new model through setting goals, feedback, ideas, etc. Please fill out the form if you are interested in being apart of the workgroup!
By Joining VAEE you will get access to our Monthly Member Newsletters, Email Blasts, and Member Only Forums. The VAEE web page is an additional resource for information on membership, the annual conference, board nominations, and upcoming environmental education events. Or follow along on Facebook, or Instagram for quick updates.
VAEE membership is a great deal! Members participate in the VAEE Annual Conference and other events throughout the year at a discounted rate. Often pricing is set so it is actually CHEAPER for you to join and register for an event as a member than registering as a non-member.
VAEE is a volunteer based organization run by environmental educators for environmental educators. We are always looking for ways to improve and grow and we can only do so with you input! VAEE encourages members to have "ownership" of their professional organization by serving on VAEE's Board of Directors, or one of our standing Action Teams: Advocacy, Communications, Conference, EE Certification, Fundraising/Development, Membership and Nominations/Elections
Join as an individual educator or as a supporting organization!
