IECA's semi-annual conferences are attended by consultants, school, college and program admissions officers, administrators and staff, and related service companies. Conferences feature thought-provoking and informative workshops and discussions led by leaders in their fields including specialists in educational trends, college admissions and boarding school issues, adolescent development, learning differences, and emotional disorders and treatments. Continuing education hours are available. Full and half-day pre-conference trainings and campus tours are typically offered. Our two-hour "Information Swaps" are College, School & Program Fairs that allow for increased networking among consultants and admissions/program representatives. And our Vendor Hall allows attendees to visit the exhibits of companies who do not work directly with students, but who provide related resources (i.e. publications, software, equipment, financing, etc.).
