Who We Serve

The National Association of Agricultural Educators is a federation of state agricultural educators associations with more than 7,800 members. Our members are involved in school-based agricultural education at any level, from middle school through postsecondary, and state and national agricultural education leaders.

We advocate for agricultural education, provide professional development for agricultural educators, and work to recruit and retain agricultural educators in the profession. We offer a variety of programs and services to support this three-pronged mission.

Our Mission

"Professionals providing agricultural education for the global community through visionary leadership, advocacy and service."

NAAE seeks to advance agricultural education and promote the professional interests and growth of agriculture teachers as well as recruit and prepare students who have a desire to teach agriculture. The organization is dedicated to developing professional pride and competency, to nourishing a spirit of unity among classroom teachers, and to recognizing members for conducting outstanding programs. It monitors governmental affairs affecting agricultural education and assists in the development of priorities and strategies to effect federal legislation and appropriations.

Our History

Agricultural educators who had formed state associations for agricultural educators organized the National Vocational Agricultural Teachers' Association (NVATA) in 1948 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In 1997 at the annual NVATA convention in Las Vegas, Nevada, the name of the organization was changed to the National Association of Agricultural Educators (NAAE). The NAAE is a federation of 50 state agricultural educators associations. The governing body of the organization consists of a board of directors with a president, president elect, and six regional vice presidents. Today, more than 7,600 agricultural educators are members of NAAE.
