AAEE Regional Coordinators and State Representatives

Since 1934, the American Association for Employment in Education (AAEE) has provided members with direct access to research, publications and networking opportunities with colleagues - all focused upon the highest standards in educator preparation, recruitment, hiring and retention. AAEE is an organization that brings together state and local school system representatives and college and university career centers and education departments throughout the country. The ability for these entities to collaboratively work in preparing, recruiting and retaining valuable teacher candidates has been at the core of the organization and that core belief remains the priority among its constituent memberships. 

A major contributor to the growth of AAEE are Regional Coordinators (RC) and State Representatives (SR). Many of our current members have expressed an interest in providing leadership in this initiative by identifying potential AAEE members; however, we have several open positions for RC and SR leadership roles. 


Regional Coordinators provide membership development of the State Representatives within their state/region, contribute to Blog & Social Media, serve as marketing outlets for events, conferences, and Job Search Handbook distributions within the region, participate in quarterly RC meetings, and bi-annual meetings with the board, and participate in the “Welcome Reception for New Members” at the Annual Conference. The RC position is a two-year term that is renewable.  Regional Coordinators will gain increased familiarity with the AAEE leadership system, a stronger connection between regional and national associations, and obtain recognition and an official title with a national association. Individuals who serve in this role will also be recognized with a statement of appreciation that AAEE will share with the RC’s respective employer.

State Representatives support the RC in providing membership development within their designated state, serve as a conduit to market AAEE programs, conferences, etc., and participate in the “Welcome Reception for New Members” at the Annual Conference. The SR position is a one-year term, with the option to renew or move into a Regional Coordinator position. SRs will benefit from becoming more familiar with AAEE leadership systems and obtaining a stronger connection between related regional and national associations.

We currently have several vacancies for these roles. If interested, please contact Tim Neubert, Executive Director, execdir@aaee.org.
