Hello! I’d like to introduce myself! My name is Rhonda Schmaltz, and I am the Iowa Membership Chair for our National Business Education Association!

As a business educator, one of the most powerful and best things you can do for yourself professionally is to join an organization like NBEA! The added bonus of joining NBEA is you automatically become a member of NCBEA (North-Central Business Education Association) too!

For just 27 cents per day, you enjoy the following member benefits:

  1. NBEA Professional Journal and Publications
  2. Special Publications
  3. Regional Association Membership -- As a member from the North Central region, you automatically become a member of North Central Business Education Association!
  4. Business Education Advocacy
  5. Annual National Convention
    The Chicago Marriott Downtown is the convention headquarters hotel for the NBEA 2019 Annual Convention & Trade Show, April 16-20, 2019.  Make your reservations today by visiting
  6. Annual Regional Meetings
  7. $250,000 Professional Liability Insurance -- This is NOT umbrella coverage -- it is $250,000 per individual, per occurrence!
  8. Group Insurance Programs for NBEA Members
  9. Professional Awards Program
  10. International Society for Business Education (ISBE)
  11. Association for Research in Business Education--Delta Pi Epsilon (ARBE-DPE)
  12. National Business Honor Society

I personally think one of greatest benefits we get is the $250,000 liability insurance! I’m not sure how many of you realize this, but this is a HUGE benefit that automatically comes with your membership! All of the benefits come with our membership for a mere $85.00 per year. This is a BARGAIN for everything we get! Visit NBEA’s website, to see for yourself the many opportunities afforded you through membership.
