Those who try it, love it. Over 30% of our membership serves on committees and actively participates in the planning of programs and in the governance of the organization. Established in 1964, ACLEA is an international association. While our members are primarily from the United States and Canada, they also hail from the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Africa, and Mexico.
