TYPES OF MEMBERSHIP WITH OCEA:

1. OCEA School Board Subscriptions (SBS) for Yearly Memberships

At the 2018 Ontario Cooperative Education Association (OCEA) Annual Business Meeting (ABM), the OCEA Board approved a motion that the Association will begin offering School Board Subscriptions (SBS) for purchase for the September 1, 2018 to August 31, 2019 school year. The SBS fee is based on the amount of Secondary Schools in your School District.

If you would like to purchase an SBS for you secondary school educators / teachers, please send a request to our Administrative Assistant. Once your request is received, the Administrative Assistant will send you a school board code (once payment is received) and as a school board lead / purchaser, you will be sent the necessary information and then you can forward to your Secondary School Educators / Teachers on how to register for a membership using the SBS code.

The SBS is for Secondary School Educators / Teachers Only – it does not include Elementary School Educators / Teachers at this time.

If you have any questions, please contact our Administrative Assistant at OCEA@rogers.com.
