IECA Member Spotlight

Thanks to the many interests our members represent, IECA has a diverse membership including engineers, contractors, consultants, landscapers, manufactures, student and academic members, and more. Each quarter we will feature one of these members in this member spotlight section. It's a great way for you to you meet your colleagues and find members with similar interests and see how they are making the most of their IECA Membership.

To see yourself in the spotlight, just send an email to the IECA with some basic information including job history, statement explaining the value of your IECA membership and a head shot with the highest resolution.  A member of the staff will then follow up with you.  It only takes a minute and the committee would love to hear from you.
