Yes, I am a member of the local chapter of the IAEI. It is a good source of information, both for the magazine/website, and the opportunities at the monthly meetings. In our area, the membership includes local contractors and inspectors. At the monthly meetings, we have had manufacturers present new products, PV system engineers provide quality CEU's, training on grounding, code changes or whatever the 'hot' topic is that month. Monthly newsletter, picnics, and a networking opportunity.
