Membership is open to educators and all other persons who are interested in the education of elementary level children, including teachers, school-site administrators, central office administrators, professors of education, and DPI administrators.
NCAEE is governed by a Board of Directors. Members of the Board include the President, Immediate Past President, President Elect, Secretary, Treasurer, eight Regional Directors from the eight education regions of the state, and six At-Large Directors. Standing committees, with members appointed by the President with the approval of the Board, help to carry out the work of the association. The standing committees are
NCAEE offers engaging and exhilarating annual Elementary School Conferences each year.
There are many opportunities for elementary educators to fill leadership roles in NCAEE. Through membership and active involvement, individuals can help to determine the future direction of NCAEE and have a lasting impact on education at the elementary level in North Carolina.
You are invited to join like-minded elementary educators by becoming a member of NCAEE and becoming actively involved. Feel free to contact any of the NCAEE Board members listed on the Board of Directors page to explore possibilities for leadership roles for yourself in the association. We look forward to hearing from you!
NCAEE continues to uphold a high standard of excellence in professional development, and this year we are proud to celebrate 16 years of making a difference.
NCAEE also offers professional development across the state. The participants of these professional development opportunities will not only gain valuable knowledge but also have a chance to to win some fantastic door prizes, including a FREE conference registration for our annual conference.
