Transitioning from Associate to Professional Membership

  • TRANSCRIPTS: With a few exceptions, the IECA office should already have your official transcripts, as filed with your Associate Member application.
  • REFERENCES: There should also already be one professional reference document on file. If you wish to use that for one of the three required professional references, you are welcome to list that person as a reference contact again. The IECA membership staff will simply afford that person the opportunity to write a quick update.
  • DUES: We’ll apply all of your unused associate membership dues toward professional membership when your application is complete and approved, so you won’t lose any of your membership dues and there is no need to wait for your current associate membership year to lapse.
