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. 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. We do litter pick up service about three times a year and need more volunteers to help.
We are currently on the summer schedule and will resume the lunch meetings in September.
At our Annual Banquet in January, Jim Harakas PE was awarded our "Distinguihed Career Award" and Randy LaBeff PE was awarded our "Engineer of Merit Award." See Jim's biography in our Awards Page.
See pictures below of our last Field Trip to Grand Coulee Dam a couple of summers ago. It was attended by our Region 8 Director, Kristina Swallow, P.E.
