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 currently held on Mondays at Christian Brothers University at Central and East Parkway starting at 11:30 AM in the Sabbatini Lounge of the Thomas Center across from the cafeteria. The meeting begins at 12:00 noon.


The Engineers' Club of Memphis is now a 501(C)3 organization. Any donations to the Scholarship Fund or the Life Member Fund are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

The CBU cafeteria will not be open during the Summer months. The snack bar is open. Unless otherwise noted, the meetings will still be held in the Sabbatini Lounge - meetings start at 12:10. Please check below for meeting location.

The Club has funds budgeted for grants that will promote the engineering profession to students. This is the call for grant applications. Anything longer than a page is overkill. Just tell us how the funds would be used to promote engineering. Submit your application to the "Blurbmeister" (or click on 'contact us' below) to leave an email response) not later than 9/17/19. They will be reviewed at the 9/24/19 Board meeting. A check or checks will be written shortly thereafter.
