Membership Types

You can establish your CEC membership in one of three ways: 

  1. Premier (our most expansive package with exclusive benefits)
  2. Full (offers all the benefits of Basic membership as well as special professional development and topical information)
  3. Basic (featuring the most-requested CEC member benefits at our lowest price)

Students receive 20% off any individual membership rate.

Regardless of which level you choose, CEC membership provides expanded benefits and services and allows you to select the option that best meets your needs. 

You can choose how you:

  • Access evidence-based articles to broaden your knowledge.
  • Receive news and information to keep you current.
  • Engage in conversations that stimulate your thinking.
