FEA’s robust and exclusive member discount programs are a part of our commitment to helping our members live the American Dream.
Through the buying power of our two national affiliates Santa Rosa EA members are eligible for big discounts on insurance, home financing, classroom supplies and everyday purchases. Combine that with the FEA/Access member benefit program and it’s possible to offset the cost of your membership with member benefit discounts alone.
