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.


Elections for four new members of the Board of Directors are closer than you think.
We need four new faces to help lead the Club for the next three years. Please give this opportunity to serve your serious consideration. Contact President Elect Solomon Akinduro or any Board member.

This is the time of year when we update our Sponsors' ads. Chairman Tom Lawrence has contacted our present sponsors for their updates - but if you would like to be added to this auspicious group, please contact Tom Lawrence and express your interest.
