From September 11th through September 13th Eric Speier, of 5 Elements Entertainment, attended the International Executives Association (“IEA”) Conference in Edmonton, Canada as a representative of our Long Beach chapter. The IEA had humble beginnings, starting in 1916 and in 1996 it became the format that we see today.. Currently the IEA has 50 chapters and 3000 businesses throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Eric spoke about his time at the conference and what the IEA has planned for its members in the future. The IEA Conference gave him an unique opportunity to connect with our other members from all across North America and build relationships for future referrals and leads. As a reminder, your membership pays for your business to be connected to the the greater IEA and can lead to referrals outside of our chapter. The IEA has also introduced webinars this year Eric explains. The webinars are free for members and it is also open to members who would like to lead a webinar of their own. The IEA website also gives its members another way to market their business. On the website members are given an opportunity to promote their business by placing ads.
Going to the IEA conference is available to all members and next year the conference will be in Vancouver British Columbia September 23-25th..
Remember to invite guests to keep our membership continually growing!
