Your voice matters. As a non-profit, member-based society, it's tough to stress just how important it is for you, as an early childhood educator, to support your provincial association and have a voice on issues of importance to you. The Association of Early Childhood Educators of Alberta (AECEA) depends on the size and strength of its membership to allow it to engage, plan and advocate for system changes and further public investment in the early learning and child care sector.
Why become a member of AECEA?
Being a member allows AECEA to support you in your work as an Early Childhood Educator.
Membership serves as your link to your peers and other leaders in the field; it provides an opportunity to keep current on news, research and best practices; it encourages connections with other early childhood development professionals and organizations and provides an opportunity to involve yourself in advocacy, professional learning, leadership roles and public awareness efforts. It provides resources to allow board members to plan member training events and forums. It can provide you with access to a group health benefits plan, a free affiliate membership to the Canadian Child Care Federation and discounts on AECEA-sponsored events and workshops. It's also the best way to become a part of advancing an early childhood educator profession. For further information on membership, go here.
There are three levels of membership available.
Membership fees are annual*, due on the anniversary of your join date. Payments can be made by Visa, MasterCard, or through a cheque mailed to our office.
*Professional membership can be obtained with monthly instalment payments.
