NCEA is in your state! Like and Follow your State's Esthetician page on Facebook and look forward to receiving Educational articles, Legislative Alerts, COA-Continuing Education (CEs) and network with other estheticians in your state.
According to Jorie Scholnik in her USA Today College article, the benefits of joining your professional association is a win-win situation for students, for networking, and showing initiative to learn more about their career pursuit. Even better when you put your Association Membership on your resume and social media accounts. Future employers can seek out the motivated future employee.
Top reasons given by Scholnik to join:
1. Internships and job opportunities.
2. Code of Ethics (see under About NCEA tab and your Milady textbook!)
3. Industry Standards (see under Political Advocacy tab - Standards & Positions)
4. Conferences (National Esthetic Teacher Training, and Industry sponsored trade shows)
5. Updates on policies (see under Political Advocacy tab - State Issues)
Where is your Membership Certificate?
I just noticed at another spa that they displayed their association membership certificate! I thought it was absolutely wonderful! We are professionals, just like doctors, lawyers, etc. so why shouldn't we? It also sends a message to our clients that we show pride in our profession. I'm hanging mine up tomorrow! I challenge all estheticians to get out their Membership Certificates, NCEA Certified credentials and hang them for all their clients to see!
p.s. Most states already require your esthetician license and a facility license be on the wall. Not sure? Check with your state regulatory board http://www.ncea.tv/find-your-state-regulatory-board
