The hallmark of an IECA member consultant is an extensive knowledge of schools, colleges and special programs. IECA encourages the active participation of educational institutions and offers a number of opportunities for schools and universities to share valuable information with our members.
Conferences are held twice a year, in the fall and spring, in communities throughout The United States and Canada. Each IECA conference draws more than 300 private practice consultants and 800 school administrators, admission representatives, and counselors. In addition to nationally recognized speakers and experts on educational practices, these gatherings provide significant opportunity for professional networking and the sharing of campus developments.
