EERA was created in 1977 and for 30 years has been one of this country’s successful regional educational research organizations. EERA is affiliated with the American Educational Research Association as a member of the AERA Special Interest Group for regional research associations. EERA members meet at an annual conference in February or early March. Members’ research is disseminated through 16 divisions and 21 Special Interest Groups (SIGs). The organization is administered through a Board of Directors elected by the membership. The organization awards an Outstanding Paper Award during the annual Conference along with $500 travel support to present at the AERA Annual Meeting.
