Membership of the A.A.R.E. provides a range of benefits. Many members over the years have found it an organisation that has supported them personally and professionally while helping them to enhance their own educational and pastoral work as Religious
Educators. A discount is also offered to financial members for many Association functions.

The Association seeks to represent religous educators and chaplains to State (e.g. SCSA and DET) and National (e.g. ACARA) educational bodies and forums and to meet their varying needs by providing a range of resources and events.
