Membership Frequently Asked Questions

I am a NAEYC member; am I also a member of a local chapter?
Yes.  All NAEYC members are automatically PennAEYC members and must choose at least one local chapter when joining.  To see our chapters, click here.  Most people choose the local where they live or work.  Some parts of the state do not have a local chapter; those members can choose any local chapter or the 'at-large' option.

My center is accredited, and our director is a member.  Am I also a member?
Only if you paid dues and joined under your own name.  All AEYC memberships are for individuals only.  For more information on how to join, click here.  If you are not sure of your membership status, you can check it by calling NAEYC at 1-800-424-2460.  If you do not receive Young Children or Teaching Young Children in your name, you are probably not a member.
I am leaving my position; can my membership be transferred to my replacement?
Since all AEYC memberships are for individuals, you can not transfer your benefits to another person.  In order to continue receiving your benefits, make sure NAEYC has your correct address. 
Why am I not receiving my journal, emails, and other benefits?
Most likely your membership has expired or NAEYC does not have your correct contact information.  Verify your membership status by calling NAEYC at 1-800-434-2460 or logging into the members' only section of their website.

 “Membership in NAEYC and the State and Local Affiliate is an important part of being an early childhood education professional. It keeps me current in policy and practice issues and con­nects me with a community of my peers.”  Mary Graham, Delaware Valley AEYC
