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.
Volunteer officials are needed for the National Science Bowl Competition, to be hosted at Whitworth University (Spokane, WA). The Inland Emprie Regional competition is scheduled for Saturday February 18 2017 at Whitworth University, with a practice session on February 8 at 4:30 PM.
Interest volunteers can contact the university professor Professor Markus Ong at email@example.com or 509-777-4207. Please response ASAP.
