Inland Empire Section

The Inland Empire Section meets monthly from September through May in the Spokane metropolitan area.  We have lunch meetings, normally held on the third Thursday of the month, with the Annual Banquet in January.   The Section and technical committees frequently sponsor workshops and continuing education opportunities throughout the year.  The revenue from these seminars are used to award scholarhips to college engineering students.  Through WSDOT Adopt-A-Highway program, we have adopted two miles of Interstate 90 just west of Spokane where we do litter pick up service about three times a year and need more volunteers to help.




The next Luncheon will be held on Thursday, April 20th.  Please see the April 2017 Newsletter and Event Page for more information.  Please plan to attend.
