Types of Membership for Schools

The Tri-Association has different types of memberships available to schools.

Regular Members Schools

Schools that belong to one of the three sub-regional organizations; ACCAS, ASOMEX AND AACSA are considered regular members of the Tri-Association and have full membership benefits.

Benefits for Regular Member Schools include:

  • Non-limited participation in the Annual Educator’s Conference and reduced conference and institutes fees.
  • Eligibility for participation in annual awards programs (Paul G. Orr, Community Service, Margaret E. Sanders, TieCare Global Leadership Award).
  • Preferential access to special institutes and other staff development programs, some leading to a graduate degree or special endorsement.

  • Access to educational research bulletins, executive summaries and information.
  • Eligibility to be represented on the Staff Development Advisory Council (SDAC).

Invitational Schools

The Tri-Association offers invitational membership to educational institutions, which are not regular members as they might not necessarily fit the criteria required by our three sub-regional members: AASCA, ACCAS, and ASOMEX. This is an Annual Membership and needs to be renewed each year.
Schools applying for invitational membership should be interested in continuous educational improvement, staff development and teach part of their curriculum in English. The application needs to be submitted to the Executive Director for approval. The Executive Director will consult with the Sub-Regional Association (ACCAS, AASCA, ASOMEX), regarding the eligibility of the applicant. The Executive Director will consider the references and recommendations on the part of the schools that belong to the corresponding sub-regional association in making the final decision for acceptance. Acceptance as an Invitational Member carries a term of one year. Invitational Schools will need to reapply after that time.

Benefits for Invitational Member Schools include:

Participation in other Association’s staff development activities will be available based on space. Corresponding fees will apply.

Access to the Association’s Newsletter (3 times per year).

Memberships to NAIS and NAESP, and EBSCO services are available for a fee (see information below).
