Commissaries and Recreational Facilities

A Note to Association General Managers and Board Members

AEA Portal understands how associations and commissaries are regulated by the Office of Commissary and
Recreation Affairs (CR). Using CR guidelines and best business practices, we will work with you to improve the
services of your association so that your members’ satisfaction is maximized. Often the first step for this
maximization is through your website.  Moreover, having your association website on AEA Portal improves the
ability of current and future members to find your club or association, read about it, and engage association
employees.  Finally, if you cannot find the web service or application you need for your website on AEA Portal,
we’ll even do our best to create it. Let our experience, passion, and knowledge help to improve your website.

employees will find that establishing and updating a professional-looking and functioning website on the
