Does your chapter provide or support any scholarships for students? How would one apply?
Yes, our chapter awards 2-5 annual scholarships valued between $500-$1000 (based on the number of applicants) to students who are currently enrolled in a construction-related trade or degree program in the United States. More information about the application process can be found on our website.
In 2020, we awarded three scholarships to worthy students. Read more about this past year’s winners in the August edition of IIBEC Chapter News!
Are you currently looking to fill any positions on your board, either for an officer or director position?
We are always looking for motivated volunteers! This coming December we will be looking to fill the role of secretary on our executive committee.
What advice would you give to the next generation of consultants?
Do not give up. It is hard work, but this career will allow you to meet people and take you to places that not everyone will have access to.
