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.
NEWS - FUTURE PROGRAMS & UPCOMING EVENTS
A very sad time for the Engineers' Club - We have again lost two long time Life Members within a week
Bob Mosby and Lewis Wood.
Long time Life Member - Bob Mosby - passed away at the age of 92 on September 9, 2016. Bob had been a member of the Club since 1961, served on the Board and many committees, and served as President in 1971. He was a World War II veteran serving in the United States Navy. He retired from Lehman-Roberts Company as Vice President of Engineering.
Long time Life Member - Lewis Wood - passed away at the age of 90 on September 14, 2016. Lewis had been a member of the Club since 1954, served on the Board and many committees, and served as President in 1973. He was the Chariman for the Engineers Club Scholarship at the University of Tennessee. He was a World War II and Korea veteran serving in the United States Navy. He retired from Allen & Hoshall, Consulting Engineers.
Both of these gentlemen were patriots, leaders in their fields, successful businessmen, mentors to their friends and just all around great guys. They were both members of the 'Greatest Generation' and eptomized the meaning of that phrase. They will be sorely missed. Our loss is heaven's gain. Go in peace.
It seems likely that the ECM will not have a golf tournament this year. However, the Society of American Military Engineers has a tournament scheduled for October 7, 2016 at Glen Eagle Golf Course in Millington. All professional and technical societies have been invited to participate in this scholarship fund raising event. Contact Geoff Pope at email@example.com if you are interested.
