Administrator “Ask Letter” For CAEA Membership


As Art Educators, we are no strangers to advocacy. 

We so often have to advocate for the importance of what we do, the resources we need for our classrooms, and for our own professional development. 


CAEA is here to help build your advocacy toolbox: and this includes making it as easy as possible for you to request financial support from administrators for membership costs to join your state and national professional organization. Remember: a personal request from educators is always more powerful than a mass email from our organization.

Click here for a customized letter that you can personalize in an email to your school administrator. You can use this to renew your own current membership or to help an art educator you know who is not a current member become one.
