IECA’s annual Professional Member Retreat is held each winter. Attendance is limited to IECA Professional members and is particularly focused on the needs of members with five years of experience in the profession. The presentations and guest speakers are appropriate and valuable for those practicing in all specialty areas: college, schools, therapeutic, learning disabilities, international. The focus of the retreat is sharing, group discussion, and special focused presentations. The One Great Idea session involves all participants as they share the best ideas, resources, and tips that help them run their practices in 5-minute presentations. All of these great ideas are compiled into a booklet for participants to take home.


January 13–15, 2020, Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort, Phoenix, Arizona
