The Greater Washington, DC chapter of ILEA (then known as ISES) was founded in 1988 and will celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2018. Our chapter is comprised of members from Maryland, Washington, DC and Virginia, as well as many other surrounding areas, including Baltimore and Richmond.

In 2004, ILEA DC was awarded the “Chapter of the Year” by ILEA Headquarters for its achievements during the 2003-2004 membership year. ILEA DC members have served on many ILEA International boards and committees, including as three former International Presidents and members of the Board of Governors.

ILEA DC is a proud member of the Northeast ILEA region, which includes Connecticut, Greater Philadelphia, Hampton Roads, New England, New Jersey North, New Jersey South, New York Metro, Pittsburgh, Rhode Island, and our own Washington D.C.
