Be Active


Make the most of your AEA membership. AEA encourages members to get involved in the organization at whatever level best suits your interests and lifestyle. There are many opportunities to participate in local, regional, and statewide levels. Your involvement makes a big difference since, truly, every AEA member’s voice counts.


Whether you choose an issue about which you’re passionate or even run for statewide office within the Association, your input is crucial in how AEA benefits the education family and serves as the voice for education in Alabama. Being active also gives you the chance to improve your own personal and professional development as an educator and person.


Look at the ways you can BE ACTIVE. No doubt, you’ll find something you like and are exceptional in doing.

Local Associations

Local associations are comprised of colleagues within your local school system.
Find your local association for immediate contact for professional support. 

Association Representatives

The Association Representative (AR) is a vital link to the education profession.

AEA Elections

AEA is the largest democratically organized professional association in Alabama and almost every AEA leadership position is elected by the membership. 
Your vote elects the education professionals who set the agenda for your association and in many cases for your local schools. The more you get involved and the more you vote, the stronger your professional association will become.    

AEA Delegate Assembly

The government of the AEA is controlled by the Delegate Assembly, which sets policies and the agenda for AEA.
