Call for Proposals
The Independent Educational Consultants Association sponsors a series of conferences, workshops, and meetings in various parts of the country. Two national conferences are scheduled each year, typically in May and November. The programs, which attract more than a thousand participants, span several days and include sessions designed solely for IECA members as well as a Professional Day Program, designed to meet the needs of admissions and administrative representatives and other educational professionals from schools, colleges, and programs.
The IECA Program Committee is responsible for coordinating the complete conference schedule of workshops, seminars, and speakers. The committee will review all proposals and make its decisions based on experience of the presenter(s), timeliness and relevance of the topic, general quality of the proposal, usefulness of information, and potential to attract and engage conference attendees. In seeking to maintain an overall balance of topics, it is inevitable that the committee will be unable to accept, or may defer, some excellent proposals. Proposals that promote individual programs, institutions, or commercial materials are considered inappropriate.
