IECA conferences are held twice a year, during the fall and spring, in communities throughout the United States. In addition to up to 500 IECs, school, college, and program admission leaders also attend our conferences. Together, all attendees participate in educational sessions, fairs, and networking events. IECA also coordinates campus tours prior to and following the conferences.
