AER’s Divisions are an integral part of the Association, and were established to support and represent the discipline-specific interests of AER’s widely diversified professional members. AER’s divisions welcome practitioners at all levels of expertise and experience, provide encouragement and professional assistance to their members. A Division may publish a Division newsletter, have a professional website, host an electronic list, hold periodic meetings and educational conferences. AER actively works with its Divisions to offer innovative continuing education offerings to help meet members' needs. AER Divisions have representation on the AER International Board of Directors. Division Committees assist the AER Board and Conference Committee in developing the educational content of the Biennial International Conference, and three divisions have committees that conduct reviews of university programs preliminary to AER approval.
Any AER member may join any Division. To take advantage of this important member benefit, select the Division you want to join on your AER membership application or renewal form and send the small additional dues payment for the Division dues. For more visit the AER store at:
