Providing service to members is the reason for the AAEA's existence. Some of the services we provide are listed below.
- Communications -- The
collection and dissemination of information pertinent to the membership
of the organization is an important part of the services provided. The
AAEA publishes a monthly newsletter, the Administrator, two quarterly journals, The Instructional Leader andSchool Law Review,
and provides information through this web page. Several of the
constituent associations also publish newsletters for their members.
- Professional Development
-- The Association sponsors state and regional conferences, workshops
and electronic learning opportunities for the professional growth of its
members. The constituent associations also assist with professional
development at state and national levels.
- Legislative Influence

before committees, vital to education, conduct weekly briefings for
members, and maintain a daily web page of legislative action. Following
adjournment of the General Assembly, the Law Supplement which contains
education laws enacted during the new session is posted on the AAEA
website and available to all members. The Association also maintains
contact with members of the Arkansas General Assembly and the U.S.
Congress on a continuing basis.

school-related state organizations which are dedicated to the
improvement of educational programs.

the job listing at no cost.
