“IIE has opened the door for me to learn more about what IEs do in the real world. IIE has been a great avenue for me to meet IEs from all over the world, both professionals and students. There are many things that keep me involved with IIE. The first thing is the people. At the student level, I was fortunate enough to interact and meet many people in IIE’s senior leadership. It was a great college experience. In addition, I believe IIE has amazing potential for growth. As far as I am concerned, every IE should be a member of IIE. Lastly, I absolutely love the annual conferences. It is the one time a year where IEs from all over the world have the opportunity to come together in one location. You learn so much and network like there is no tomorrow… and they are so much fun!”
