As a member driven organization, ECIA has a number of different councils set up to carry out the work of the association under the direction and policies set by the ECIA Board of Directors. Each of these councils is comprised of individuals from ECIA member and associate member companies and ECIA staff resources. One of the best ways to maximize the benefit of an ECIA membership is to get involved in one of our councils: your opportunity to… Connect. Influence. Optimize.
Promotion and positioning of ECIA, its brand, its mission and its various deliverables to ECIA members, their customers and the industry at large in order to help the association achieve its goals and objectives and maximize the value current members receive from their membership as well drive the recruitment of new members.
