About Us

The US chapter of SIEC-ISBE was chartered in 1947 and boasts a rich history of unparalleled professional development and networking opportunities to members. The US chapter contracted decades ago with another nonprofit organization to manage administrative tasks, an arrangement that ended December 31, 2020.

The new, revitalized US chapter launched Jan 1, 2021 under the name SIEC-USA, offering significantly reduced membership dues, expanded national and international benefits, and improved communications and networking. We remain dedicated to professional development and networking, supporting the vital link between business and business educators nationally and around the world.

Mission Statement

The mission of SIEC-USA is to develop an interactive, national and international exchange network among business education professionals.
