Dear NYSMEA member,
I’m excited to tell you that the National Marine Educators Association (NMEA) has launched its second Membership Drive! Kicking off on Earth Day (April 22) and continuing through World Oceans Day (June 8), we have seven solid weeks planned of celebrating initiatives such as ocean literacy and highlighting the people that make us who we are: our members.
I’ve been involved with NMEA for 10 years and have personally benefitted from many networking and educational experiences. I believe NMEA is the leading professional organization focused on marine science education and I’m proud of the role NMEA played in advancing ocean literacy at the national level and a number of other initiatives such as. As a member, I have utilized the professional resources, connections, leadership opportunities and spheres of influence by conference lectures and field trips. My career has benefitted through my active involvement in NMEA.
If you decide to join now, in addition to all of the benefits available online, in person, and through our peer-reviewed journal, we’re pleased to offer you the opportunity to gain entry to our Membership Drive raffle. Thanks to our colleagues and supporters, by joining during our Membership Drive, you will be eligible to win “opportunity drawing” prizes including a Grand Prize of $100 Amazon Gift card or other prizes.
In addition to Professional

I believe you would benefit from being an active part of NMEA so I wanted to reach out and personally invite you to join. If you are already a member, thanks for indulging my passion for NMEA and I’m sure you agree! Are there others in your circle who you think would benefit from becoming a member? We’d love to have you help us spread the word.
