Professional members work in educational, clinical, organizational, consulting/coaching, research, and assessment fields. Associate members are not in professional areas but are interested in learning about EI. Student members must be enrolled in college, graduate or doctoral degree programs.

Congresses & Conferences


Our International Congresses have convened since 2007 in several countries across the globe including Spain, Croatia, United States. Argentina, Portugal, Australia and Italy. Emotional intelligence researchers, scholars, educators and consultants come together to discuss the latest innovations in EI theory, assessment and interventions and how they can be applied in various professions. The 2022 International Congress is set to take place in Palermo, Italy (August 30 through September 2).
