AEE Regions

Connect with Other Experiential Educators in Your Area!

Regions play a significant role in AEE by providing opportunities for members in a particular geographic region to learn and grow together. Regions meet regularly (in-person or via Zoom!) to plan Regional events and generally work to elevate the capacity of Experiential Education in a particular geographic area. 

Each region is staffed by dedicated volunteer leaders. Volunteer with your AEE Region!

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
