The arts are essential; they are an equal partner in all learning. The unified voice of the Cleveland Arts Education Consortium (CAEC) on behalf of its more than ninety member organizations reminds all education leaders and administrators that the arts are an essential component in a well-rounded education.
Membership in the Cleveland Arts Education Consortium is now available to 501(c)(3) organizations and educational institutions based in the seven counties surrounding the City of Cleveland:
Cuyahoga • Geaugo • Lake • Lorain • Medina • Portage • Summit

Those organizations desiring to become CAEC members should be engaged in designing and presenting arts education activities that serve people of all ages and circumstances.
Member organizations are asked to permit at least one representative to attend two or more CAEC sessions each year. Members are also asked to participate in CAEC surveys, and share organizational information for CAEC records, resource materials, and the CAEC website.
Basic CAEC member dues are tiered at $50, $75 or $100 per year, based on each organization's annual budget. As we want all members to be able to participate, special dues scholarship assistance is available on an as-needed basis, and must be requested in writing or in person to the Manager of the Cleveland Arts Education Consortium.
Four new Leadership Partner Dues levels have been introduced in 2017, affording organizations to commit to three years of Consortium membership support and participate fully without additional cost. Leadership Partners will be recognized on all CAEC member lists.
Visionary Leadership Partners — annual dues at $1,500 or more, permitting all staff and board members to participate without additional cost during the time of this commitment.
Innovator Leadership Partners — annual dues between $1,000 and $1,499, permitting up to five staff and/or board to participate without additional cost during the time of this commitment.
