IAEE Southeastern Chapter hosts several events each year. For specific information about registration, location and event fees, click on the individual event.

Chapter Luncheons - IAEE Southeastern Chapter hosts 5 chapter luncheons for its members and their guests during the course of the year. These meetings are held on the 4th Thursday of February, April, June, and October. The Annual Holiday Party is held the last Thursday in November or the first Thursday in December.

Annual Southeastern Classic - What a great chapter tradition! For more than 25 years, the annual Southeastern Classic has been the chapter’s premier education and networking event. Two full days of seminars, panels and roundtables featuring noted industry and non-endemic speakers, plus social events and opportunities for behind-the-scenes facility and venue visits make the Southeastern Classic a must-attend event!

Young Professionals’ Meet-ups - Scheduled throughout the year, Meet-Ups at local area pubs are a great way for IAEE YPs to network and socialize.

Local Meetups - Meetups are also scheduled throughout the year – typically outside the Atlanta metropolitan area. Any member who wishes to coordinate a local meet-up can contact the Chapter Administrator for a current list of members in their area.

CEM Course - For members’ convenience, the SE Chapter typically hosts a CEM Course immediately prior to the Annual Southeastern Classic or a chapter luncheon.
