Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI) has a long and proud history as an association of members dedicated to the cause of childhood education. The word "association" originates from the word "associate," for which there exists several definitions, with the common distinction of joining together or uniting in partnership. When ACEI was first conceived, associations working for causes were a relatively new form of organization. Today, thousands of associations worldwide of varied shapes and sizes offer individuals unique opportunities to join together in like-minded communities of professionals working to benefit the world. The author discusses the history and mission of ACEI and poses some questions that should be asked and answered in order to understand if an association is effective.
