With nearly 1,300 active members, the Southeastern Chapter of IAEE is and serves North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Mississippi.

Our mission at the Southeastern Chapter is to deliver relevant and highly focused services and activities designed to broaden the knowledge base, professional development and bottom lines of our members.

Recognizing that face-to-face networking is the backbone of our industry, the chapter hosts meetings or other events almost every month of the year including chapter luncheons, local meet-ups, a golf tournament and the Annual Summer Classic.
