Membership News

Our annual member survey will be distributed soon - please look for the message in your email and respond to the survey.  Your input helps us focus our efforts on what you want from your membership.  You may submit your responses anonymously, but if you’d like a chance to win one of two $75 Amazon gift cards, you must provide your contact information at the end of the survey.

We recognize that some of you may have experienced an unexpected change in employment recently as a result of COVID-19 and/or the oil collapse.  As a result, you or your company may be considering cancelling your membership in The IIA.  Both The IIA and the Houston Chapter stand ready to assist you.  Hardship offers are available through The IIA, and the Houston Chapter can also assist through hardship memberships for up to one year.  Continuing your membership retains your access to deeply discounted seminars, networking events, and IA job resources (both local https://chapters.theiia.org/houston/Careers/Pages/default.aspx and national https://jobs.theiia.org/jobseeker/search/results/).
