The Massachusetts Art Education Association will be increasing membership dues for Active, Associate, and Institutional members beginning this July. Detailed information regarding the increase can be found below.
It is important to remember that MAEA is an affiliate of the National Art Education Association, which means that when you join MAEA or NAEA you automatically belong to the other association. Our affiliate status with NAEA means that a portion of your yearly dues go to NAEA, and a portion to MAEA. With the new Active membership rate MAEA will receive $30. The new rate for Active members is just 26 cents per day, which is a bargain!
NAHS Representative Heidi Hurley is hosting a NAHS conference for chapter sponsors, advisors, and NAHS members. You don’t want to miss this great event to connect with other sponsors and advisors, and for your NAHS members to connect with other NAHS members across the state!
