Through meetings, seminars, publications, and a network of nearly 16,000 members working in more than 75 countries, ITE is your source for expertise, knowledge, and ideas.

ITE is divided into 11 geographic districts worldwide. The Western District (District 6) represents the 5 Pacific states, Guam, American Samoa, and the Northern Marianas.
