Member Benefits

As a member, you’ll receive significant discounts on ASN events, like the national conference and regional retreats. ASN Members are eligible to apply for annual recognitions: Exemplary School designation and ASN Awards. Our members are invited to submit proposals to present at our annual conferences and receive a listing and link on the ASN website. 

Special Annual Conference and Summer Retreat Rates
Members receive early access and special rates to attend the ASN national conference each year and have priority access to our exclusive Summer Leadership Retreat. These two events draw members from across the country at the intersection of hot-button issues, relevant topics, trends, and challenges facing arts education today.  

Members-Only Directory Portal
Members have access to an online profile and directory of all ASN members, organizations and individuals. Make connections with other members, post a question, create a "circle" discussion and invite participants, and obtain member only information from leaders in the arts education field. With the ASN member portal, The Network is just a click away!

Post your Summer Programs and Job Openings
ASN Members can post their summer programs and job openings on the ASN website for free. Publicize your job openings and summer programs to an audience of arts educators and institutions all over the country to help increase your pool of applicants and generate interest in your school or organization.

“I do believe there is much potential in strengthening the Australian connections with ASN. We have many excellent teaching collectives in Australia, but we generally do not have a celebration of empowering each other which the ASN provides so strongly.”
Drew Downing, Arts Enhancement Specialist
Melbourne Region, Victoria, Australia

You’ll be in good company!
