Have you had an experience with IECA that has made you think, "This is why I joined IECA"?

At a past annual conference, I had the pleasure to sit with a man from Italy and we talked about stabilizing steep slopes. It was a great conversation. The friendly staff that makes IECA tick, the true care takers of the organization and our industry, makes me proud that I am a member, and for a very long time. It has given back more than I have put in.
