Members include elementary, middle, and high school visual arts educa - tors; college and university professors, researchers and scholars, teaching art - ists, administrators and supervisors, and art museum educators; as well as more than 45,000 students who are members of the National Art Honor Society or are university students pre - paring to be art educators. NAEA'S Strategic Goals The following goals have been deter- mined as the basis of NAEA's strate- gic framework guiding the work of the association: • Community. NAEA is a dynamic, inclusive, and diverse professional community that shares a commit - ment to NAEA's mission and vision. • Advocacy. NAEA influences stake- holders and decision-makers to support visual arts education. • Learning. NAEA provides exem- plary learning opportunities that help members become more effec- tive educators, artists, leaders, and advocates for visual arts education. • Research and Knowledge.
