Learn all about the benefits of being a member of IECA — both at the chapter and national levels (your membership includes both) and join us today.
When you join IECA you join a network of peers who, like you, are dedicated to the erosion and sediment control industry. IECA is more than the world’s premier authority in erosion control – it is a platform for upwards of 2500 members worldwide to connect, learn, and affect change in the industry.
What type of individual membership is right for you?
Organizational membership entitles one person at the company to receive full Professional Member benefits and discounts to IECA events. Organizational members have the ability to purchase an unlimited number of Professional level memberships for their employees at 50% off the regular member price.
Which type of organizational membership is best for you?
With IECA membership, we ask that a one year commitment be obligatory. Participating members are encouraged to attend the Annual Conference and educate themselves on the IECA’s resources. Doing so will encompass a more profound understanding of what the association is all about and help members gain perspective as to why our environment needs to be protected through erosion control.
