Association Education Alliance

AEA Logo

The Association Education Alliance (AEA) was formed in 1991 by five wholesale-distributor trade associations: PTDA, AHTD, EASA, FPDA and NAHAD. Currently, AEA represents 43 trade associations. AEA executives meet biannually to develop programs that deliver value to its members.

The Vision of the AEA is to identify, evaluate, and develop educational products and programs for use by member associations as well as to facilitate networking and idea sharing among AEA members.

AEA develops, with the support of Purdue University, and delivers the University of Innovative Distribution (UID), a powerful four-day educational experience offered each March for member Distributors and Manufacturers.

Since 1994, UID has provided exceptional education, at the most reasonable cost, to over 7,000 industry professionals throughout the world.

AEA members also develop, or co-produce, a variety of educational programs and services for the mutual benefit of their member companies throughout the year. These may include seminars, webinars, conferences and publications.
