Why become a member?MembershipCard

NAEOP depends on project memberships, revenue from merchandise, and personal contributions to conduct and operate the business of the organization. The Association’s primary mission includes:

  • Represent the interests of TRIO programs in Region X of the US Department of Education
  • Represent professional educators who work with low-income, first-generation, and disabled students throughout the Northwest
  • Promote the development, improvement, and extension of education to non-traditional students
  • Provide training to professional personnel to enhance the quality of service delivery to students served

In recent years, the Association has expanded to include professionals from high schools, universities, and other educational agencies. If you have questions about membership contact Kristian Wiles, NAEOP Past-President.
