Dear PEI Member,

Summer is here! We hope you have a restful, refreshing break. In this newsletter, we are so excited to share about new member benefits to maximize your membership, and the upcoming professional development opportunities available to you this summer!

Please note, we will take a break from our PEI Member Newsletter in July, but be watching your email for a link to access the annual Silent Auction which will run from July 24th – 27th. That information/link will be shared mid-July. 

Thank you for your membership!

-The PEI Team


More Benefits, More Members, More Influence!

Professional Educators of Iowa (PEI) is pleased to announce we have partnered with Association Member Benefits Advisors (AMBA) to provide our members with increased benefit opportunities. Our goal is to provide all members access to the discounts, savings, and supplemental benefits they need to fully secure and enjoy their careers, while working to attract more members and strengthening the presence of PEI across the state.

AMBA is a nationwide affinity marketing company that specializes in serving the needs of active and retired public sector employees and is currently partnered with more than 80 associations like PEI across the country. The company has over 40 years of experience analyzing the benefits that public sector employees receive, identifying the gaps in coverage that exist, and negotiating with a wide variety of A-rated insurance carriers to provide the members of each of its partner associations a comprehensive menu of benefits that is tailored to their individual needs. In the coming weeks and months AMBA will send information about all the benefit programs directly to all members, in the mail and via email, so watch your mailboxes and your inboxes for these announcements!

AMBA has also made a substantial commitment to mail and email information about the programs to all potential members of PEI, with the understanding that these individuals must join the association to purchase any of the benefit programs that are being offered. AMBA benefits are exclusive to PEI members, and the company has 130+ employees working from its offices in Austin TX and Des Moines IA trained to provide callers information about our association and the benefit program, answer questions, and help enroll new members.  PEI is growing to better serve your needs and interests.

PEI is also pleased to announce that we will be providing new educational services for members because of this partnership, including free individual benefit reviews by licensed professional representatives who are committed to serving and not simply selling members. And, coming soon, PEI and AMBA will organize and conduct webinars and seminars across the state to educate members on a wide variety of topics and to provide more opportunities for members to network, renew acquaintances, meet new friends with similar backgrounds and experiences, and simply to have fun!

We are excited about this partnership with AMBA and the opportunities it presents for members individually, and our association collectively. Look for an official launch of these additional benefits in August 2023!
