IEA has a long history of uniting business leaders, empowering professionals and fostering profitable relationships.
As a member of the International Executives Association, EAC members are part of a worldwide organization (the International Executives Association - IEA) – all with the same goal to strengthen and grow one another’s businesses.
The mission of the IEA is simple... To foster the growth of Executive Association businesses by connecting them to a trusted international network of contacts.
IEA has a long history of uniting business leaders, empowering professionals and fostering profitable relationships. The first Executives Association began in 1916 in San Francisco with the purpose of creating an elite business networking organization to share confidential business leads and information among member firms.
Since 1916, Executive Associations have spread from city to city, started by successful business men and women sharing industry news with others and seeking new ways to gain an edge on their competition. Executive Associations now operate in major cities throughout the United States and Canada, as well as in England, Switzerland, South Africa and beyond.
Although the first Directors Conference was held in 1937, it was not until 1996 during the Annual Conference in Akron, Ohio that a vote was taken to formalize a way for members to expand beyond their local chapters. In response, the International Executives Association was born.
Today, there are nearly 40 dues paying IEA Chapters representing 2000 business owners around the world.
As a member of the EAC, you have access to all of the IEA members as well.
