Related Learning Organizations

The Association of Leaders in Lifelong Learning for Ministry is the first of what we hope will be more “related learning organizations.”

A Related Learning Organization of REA is an otherwise independent organization, with its own officers and bylaws, that enters into an affiliation with REA due to shared common interests and commitments. The RLO affiliation will provide mutual benefits, including but not limited to concurrent meetings and shared events and sessions, membership privileges, and information sharing. The following language is drawn from the REA by-laws:

Section 1.  RLO status will be granted upon application by the external organization approved by the Board for three years. Affiliation will be reviewed every three years for continued status based on criteria set forth in REA bylaws.

Section 2.  Combined membership in both organizations will be offered at a reduced rate from the individual rate for separate memberships. RLO members will receive reduced registration rates for the REA Annual Meeting.

Section 3.  Meeting expenses will be absorbed by REA except for expenses particular to RLO sessions. 

If you are part of an organization which is interested in becoming a “related learning organization” to the REA, please contact our networking coordinator.
