6/1/22 LAEA Strong!

LAEA is only as strong as the participation of its members. This professional organization is for us.

Where else can you network with over 100 art educators? Where else can you get professional development just for art education? Now that Covid has allowed us to open our doors back up, I am hopeful to start seeing you around. Summer retreat is right around the corner. Have you signed up yet?

It is my hopes that every member knows how to benefit from being to be apart of LAEA. Its through community, advocacy and learning that LAEA is built upon. How much do you get out of LAEA? Do you know who your regional VP is? What about your division rep? Do you know how to contact LAEA in the event you need support?

If you are a member and are not sure how to get the most from LAEA/NAEA please reach out to me and let me help you. I would love for our members to understand all the resources and benefits LAEA can offer.
