Dear Member,

The registration for the 2021 AEMA Convention is now open.  As a reminder due to Covid-19 restrictions convention will not be held in person but rather virtually via the Zoom platform.

The first step in registering for the convention is to make sure your AEMA dues are current for the 2020-2021 year.  If your dues are not current you will not be able to earn CEU’s for any of the meetings.   To pay your membership dues you can click here you can also renew your membership for 2021-2022 at this time.

Registration Costs:   

Early Registration period: until May 5, 2021             $50.00

General Admission period: starting May 6, 2021         $75.00

To register for convention via Eventbrite you can click here:

The following forms of payment are accepted via Eventbrite; Mastercard, Visa, American Express, and Discover.

The convention workshops will be held using the Zoom platform which links will be provided at a later date once the schedule is finalized.  In preparing for the meetings, you will need to put your full name - school in the “name box” on the Zoom platform.  In each meeting you attend, you will be asked to add your name to the chat box with the following information: name, school, district.  In doing this, you have ensured the accountability to make certain your continuing education units will be awarded to you.

Each member that would like to earn CEU’s for attending workshops will need to register for convention. Only those members that have paid the convention fee and are current on their membership dues will be able to earn CEU’s.

The current CEU window expires on June 30, 2022 still only needing 6.0 CEU’s for the current window, it was extended one year last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

For those members who are unable to attend one of the workshops live you will still have up to 30 days to watch the recording to earn CEU credit for that workshop.

Convention registration will occur via Eventbrite and the workshops will be held via Zoom platform.  The Zoom links to join for workshops will be emailed to all registrants prior to the meetings starting.

After payment each member will receive a receipt which can be used for expense reconciliation or for reimbursement from their school.

One person can register their entire staff for convention at the same time and pay one total fee but will need each individual’s information for registration; ie name, email, district, etc.
