On behalf of the Eastern Division Board of Directors and staff, we welcome you as a new member of PSIA-AASI! Thanks for logging onto the “Welcome” section of our Eastern Division website and thanks again for joining PSIA-AASI! We figure the first thing you will want to do is take an event, so that’s the first thing we address here for you.

You will want to look around at everything on our site, but in this section we also highlight some other areas of our website which we thought you’d really want to get to first:

Attending continuing educational events is the single most important thing you can do to benefit from your membership in PSIA-AASI. We are sure you will enjoy the events as well as gain valuable skills and knowledge. Our staff goes above and beyond to make each event fun, while at the same time providing an atmosphere for learning. Most continuing education events cost about $200, which includes your lift ticket for two days! That’s not a bad deal if you do the math; and an even better deal when you factor in the fun and learning experience as well!

Because we are an educational organization, PSIA-AASI requires continuing education of its members. Active members must attend at least two days to receive the continuing education credits needed to maintain current membership. This requirement allows you to remain current and informed about the latest in snow sports teaching, and you will find that there is nothing better than having regular contact with other pros. A Certified member needs to obtain a minimum of 6 CEUs every membership year (July 1 – June 30.) Click here for more information on maintaining Certified membership.

Most important to always remember as you start on your way …

■ PSIA-AASI offers a wonderful opportunity for instructors to grow in their professional field and have fun while doing it. Our members are motivated by sharing the joy of teaching and the mountain experience.

■ Enjoy the camaraderie of the group and the clinic leader you will ski/ride with at this event, and always to remember the fun of learning, the reward of teaching and the joy of skiing and riding.


Please don’t think the website is the only resource you have! The Eastern Division office is staffed year-round and we are happy to talk with you and answer any of your questions! Please call us at (518) 452-6095 or drop us an email at psia-e@psia-e.org anytime!
