Student Membership Qualifications & Benefits

The IECA also recently created a student membership type with the mission to assist students in finding a path to employment in the risk management, finance or legal realm within the Energy industry. Student membership consists of any person who is a full-time student registered in a college or university within the risk, finance, business, economics, accounting, or legal departments. Full time is defined as that your main profession is as a student, not a full-time employee taking classes on a part-time basis.
