AEE Regions

Connect with others in Experiential Education in your Region!

Regions play a significant role in AEE by providing opportunities for members in a particular geographic region to learn and grow together. Each region is staffed by dedicated volunteer leaders. 

We are hoping to grow our list of regions below to include other areas of the globe, but currently we only have designated regions with ongoing volunteer councils in North America. We encourage you to get more involved with your AEE region and contact us if you are interested in starting a region in your area of the world!

International: Currently includes all other areas of the world! With Members in over 29 Countries, we are working to get volunteer councils set to make international regions at AEE a reality. Please contact us if you are interested in starting a region in your area of the world! In the meantime, please join the International Affiliation Group on Facebook to connect with our Global Community!

Annual Regional Conferences

Our Annual Regional Conferences are aimed at furthering experiential education in its many applications. They seek to strengthen the Association and the field by bringing together its practitioners, supporters, and inquirers – members and non-members – to work, talk, network, play, and learn together in a unique environment that is solely devoted to these objectives and thoughtfully designed for these purposes. 

Regional Conferences serve as a time and a place for the conference attendees to come together, to learn and to grow, to celebrate, and to create community
