Great Lakes Region

Welcome to the IIE Great Lakes Region Web page

If you are one of the more than 1,200 IIE members anywhere in the states of Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, or Michigan, then you are in the right place. Our vision is to use this site as a clearinghouse for the IE-related information and opportunities throughout the region, especially to reach out to our many members who are outside of the service area of our professional chapters. Help us make this site a value-added benefit for our region's members.
