What do you think is the best membership benefit IECA offers to professionals in the mining industry?
I'd say the best benefits are the one free webinar per year and the online career center. The main thing mining people want is courses on revegetation, if they include revegetation for erosion control and BMPs. Mining companies are really struggling right now to find well-trained employees, so anything that would help them find and hire qualified employees in about all of the sciences and engineering fields would be really helpful right now.
How do you apply this benefit to your work?
By learning how stabilize very large areas from erosion (reveg) and learning about any new BMPs or products. And by finding qualified people to hire.
Would you recommend membership to one of your peers?
Yes, because we are focusing on the right things in the future.
