ABOUT US: The Engineers' Club of Memphis, organized on May 8, 1914, is a nonsectarian, nonpolitical, and nonprofit society whose objectives and purposes are to promote the educational and professional improvement of its members, to advance the field of engineering in its several branches, to make available to the general public technical and scientific information and knowledge, and generally to aid in the solution of public questions involving engineering and scientific problems. In the furtherance of these goals, the Club strives through its various committees to develop and plan ongoing educational programs, seminars, symposiums, professional tours, and other technically oriented meetings, events and projects.
MISSION: It is the mission of the Engineers' Club to promote the educational, social and professional advancement of its members; to assist community leaders, civic organizations and public agencies by providing advice on and giving support to issues which benefit the Memphis community and to acting as liaison between the Club's many affiliated societies.
MEETINGS: Weekly luncheon meetings are held on Mondays at the Holiday Inn on Central at University of Memphis. The buffet line opens at 11:30 a.m. The meeting begins at 12:00 noon.
FUTURE PROGRAMS & UPCOMING EVENTS
The Club extends it condolences to Life Member Grant Madsen. His wife Doris passed on May 8, 2013.
The Club is initiating a Project in which we set a series of programs aside as a 'mini-conference' with a designated theme/topic. If the topic happens to be controvertial, then the differing opinions will all be presented. Of course, these programs will be qualified as PDH meetings.
The first is a mini-conference on "Sustainability" and the dates are: September 23, September 30, October 7 and October 14. Director Tom Lawrence is soliciting ideas for topics that fit under this generic umbrella.
