Chapter Development

Sept. 1, 2009

IECA’s Chapter Advisory Committee (CAC) has elected Charles R. Riling Jr. as chair of the committee. The CAC is the primary link between IECA and chapters. The committee aims to maximize member satisfaction by enhancement and further development of chapter benefits and services, by recommending policy changes to IECA’s board and by ensuring effective communication between IECA and chapters.

Riling has been a member of the Mid-Atlantic Chapter since 1997, where he served on the Board of Directors and currently is in his third and final year as the chapter president.

He has been on the IECA Chapter Advisory Committee for the past three years.

“I can think of nothing that I would rather do than to be able to assist IECA in increasing membership worldwide, developing new chapters, providing training on an international level as well as a regional level, and making the name ‘IECA’ become more of a household name when people and governments start to think about erosion and sedimentation problems,” said Riling about why he’s involved with IECA.
