Membership in AERC is open to like-minded agencies and families located in Asia, working in countries other than their passport country.
Agency sponsorship: Like-minded organizations can become a sponsor of AERC. Sponsorship gives the agency a seat on the AERC board and includes a sponsorship fee of $1,200 per year. Some sponsoring agencies are opting for a special agency membership fee that comes with free memberships for a certain number of families. Normal organizational membership will be USD $1,200, and for 1-12 free Families it will be $1600, and for free 13-25 Families it will be $1900. Check with your agency about whether they are part of this opportunity.
Membership fees for families: The annual family membership fee is $100 per individual family or $75 per family from sponsoring agencies. This provides families with:
- Access to AERC consultants in several Asian countries
- Resources located in AERC resource centers in Asia – on a library lending system
- Discounts when attending Family Education conferences
- Discounts on testing services
- Access to the members only section of the website:

Teachers/Tutors Membership: As a support to families, we want to enrich and support teachers that teach in remote locations and unique settings. Therefore, AERC is pleased to invite teachers of one-room schools or homeschooling co-ops to join AERC and receive member benefits. Cost is the same as above for families.
