The Aquatic Resources Education Association (AREA) was established in direct response to a growing national need for a cohesive voice and a more fluid organized approach to the matters of regional, state, and local levels of aquatic concerns. The incorporation in 1994 of AREA launched an unprecedented national effort to join the forces of all levels of experts, scientists, technicians, aquatic professionals, and organizations dedicated to aquatics, toward responsible, viable aquatic management. Over the years, the voice of AREA has impacted the Federal, state, and local communities giving broad-scope stability, targeted growth, and offering direction to officials and organizations facing the challenges of meeting aquatic goals. AREA members, after all, have their pulse on the public, the state, and the nation.

It is our desire to continue to meet our goals, to expand opportunities for aquatic education where needed, and to freely provide our expertise to meet continuing challenges.
