IECA Awards Program

Through our Awards Programs, IECA shines the light on the outstanding achievements that is being done in the erosion and sediment control industry by individuals, organizations, agencies, and corporations. By identifying those who exemplify the very best in their fields, erosion and sediment control professionals are honored and the industry is advanced.

IECA Chapters

IECA and its Chapters form a strong partnership comprised of individuals who are dedicated to minimizing accelerated soil erosion. Chapters represent all US states, all Canadian provinces and several other countries. Chapters provide you with the opportunity to connect with colleagues, share ideas, and access learning locally through training events, newsletter updates, volunteer opportunities and networking.

Join a Committee

Build important relationships by volunteering to serve on a committee. IECA has several committees that work virtually (and face-to-face) providing you with a great opportunity for networking and a closer look at how IECA’s efforts directly affect your industry. Volunteer at the national or chapter level to help shape IECA and influence the direction of erosion and sediment control.

Corporate Partners

The IECA Partnership program was created so you can leverage your total investment in IECA. Each and every dollar invested in IECA membership, advertising, sponsorship, exhibiting and more will contribute to your overall partnership level.This program greatly enhances your organization’s investment impact. Map out your marketing plan early in the year to receive the most value for your investment in the partnership program.

Board of Directors

IECA's Board of Directors is the governing body of our Association. It consists of nine members serving three-year terms with three Directors being elected each year. It is the policy of IECA to maintain a balanced distribution of professional affiliations on the Board. However, the actual composition is determined by the membership through the nomination and voting procedures.


Your donations help support the mission to The SOIL Fund to provide technical assistance for programs and projects that address soil erosion and sedimentation through applied technology, education, and research.

Become a Mentor

IECA's Mentorship Program is a way for new members to find an IECA member who specializes in their interests. The Mentorship Program is entirely voluntary and a great way for members to give back to the industry by working with a young member new to or training to be a part of the IECA community.

IECA is the foremost organization for those involved in or concerned about soil erosion control. Membership (in IECA) tells others you take erosion control seriously and you want to help make a difference.
