I originally joined for the liability protection. I stayed a member because of all the other great benefits. The IEA has provided me with incredible training, opportunities to make great friends, and validation of the importance of my position. The IEA and NEA have lifted me up, helped me find my voice, and unveiled my true potential. I love being a part of the IEA.
