Student Membership

ILEA offers a Student Membership for individuals enrolled in a recognized certificate program. To complete the application for membership students must provide the signature of their Program Coordinator. As a condition to student membership each student must volunteer for ten (10) hours per year in their ILEA chapter; volunteering on a committee, assisting with monthly programs, or completing administrative work. Student memberships are limited and students will not have a listing on the ILEA web site, cannot use Member Discounts or the ILEA logo and cannot vote on chapter business or hold an office in ILEA. Student memberships can be held for a maximum of two years (Additional years beyond two will be addressed by ILEA and the schools’ Program Coordinator).

Student Volunteer Involvement:

As a way to get the most out of your student membership and to fulfill the 10 hours of volunteer time to the organization and we have a variety of opportunities:

  • Registration Volunteer: Assist with welcoming guests to our monthly meetings, handing out name tags, collecting meeting payments and handing out meeting information.

  • Minnesota Star Awards Volunteer: This is our annual large-scale event in which we recognize our members and their work. Opportunities include serving on a committee, helping with pre-event communication, assisting with load-in and tear-down, serving as a registration greeter, or working with vendors and sponsors.

  • Committee Involvement: Student members are encouraged to become active on one of our committees. Committee work is the best way to get hands-on experience and to network with and learn from industry professionals.
