IECA's educational Webinar Series will focus on the issues affectingIndependent Educational Consultants and allied admission professionals. IECA's monthly webinars will provide professional development covering admission issues in college, secondary school, and therapeutic placements, as well as learning disabilities and broad adolescent issues including depression, anxiety, and more.

Our webinars are designed to meet the needs of Independent Educational Consultants and we believe many school-based counselors will find the topics equally compelling, as well as admission representatives, school administrators, and program and private therapists. The presenters are chosen for their expertise and experience as online instructors. Webinars will be offered live on the second Tuesday of each month at 12:00 noon EST, 9:00 a.m. PST. All sessions will last one hour, including a question and answer segment with the presenter. In addition, IECA will archive all webinars, which will then be available for one year. Those who register for the live broadcast, or for an archived segment, will be able to view the presentation up to three times over the course of the year. For more details, check our webinar FAQs.

Participants must pre-register for each webinar, in advance.

2015 Webinars

October 13: Maximizing Your Small Business Tax Savings

As independent educational consultants, we are focused on providing a valuable service to our clients. We are informed about schools, colleges, and programs that are the right educational fit for our clients. However, we often leave (and push) to the far reaches of our minds the tiresome topic of taxes. The key is that as business owners, we should be actively maximizing our tax savings to pay as little taxes as legally possible. Small business owners have the most number of tax expenses, deductions, and credits available to them than any other category of taxpayers. Yet the average small business owner knows very little about the tax savings that are available to them. That is all about to change. This webinar is designed to highlight the tax savings strategies that will make a very tangible difference in the decreased amount that your business will pay in taxes, and the increased amount that your business will keep as profit.
