The National Coalition of Estheticians, Manufacturers/Distributors & Associations (NCEA) celebrated its 10 year anniversary.

The inaugural organizational members meetings was held 10 years ago on June 25, 2000.

Goals to acheive at that meeting included identifying aims, goals and objectives, governance and administration issues and key initiatives; establish a budget; and decide upon next steps.

Ever wonder what organizations were around back then?

  • American Society of Esthetic Medicine
  • American Academy of Medical Aestheticians, Inc.
  • American Aestheticians Education Association
  • American Electrology Association
  • American Society of Esthetic Medicine
  • Day Spa Association
  • Esthetics, Manufacturers & Distributors Alliance
  • International Guild of Professional Electrologists
  • National Society of Paramedical Esthetic Professionals
  • Society of Clinical & Medical Electrologists

Through growth and transformation, the NCEA has maintained (+/-) 16 association members (many of the original 22 no longer exist or have merged), and has grown its corporate members to include manufacturers/distributors, schools and post-graduate training facilities. Individual memberships were an added membership category in 2002 to further represent the growing need for representation of esthetic professionals to state regulatory boards.
