"I became an IEST member in 2012. I have continued to be a member, even when employer funding was eliminated. My membership and attendance at ESTECH and the Fall Conference has been invaluable and worth the personal expense. I keep my training up-to-date by attending these conferences annually and also through my continued networking with other members with varying experiences, some of whom have become mentors and my go-to experts. Working group meetings are also a great resource for learning as well as an opportunity for me to contribute to the Recommended Practices — vital documents that provide critical information to aid in the success of my job and improved employer processes."
