Volunteers wanted to help plan our 4th Annual Engineers Week Extravaganza to be held in February, 2017! This huge event is comprised of 4 days (and nights) of great activities with a primary focus on K-12 outreach but also professional networking and development. We will be partnering with some of the LA City Council Districts as well as other engineering organizations to put on this high profile event. Committee members will help with to plan the following activities:
- Elementary School Day - Tuesday, February 21st (LA City Hall)
- Middle School Day - Wednesday, February 22nd (LA City Hall)
- Technical Presentation - TBD Tuesday or Wednesday night (TBD)
- (NEW) Women's Reception - TBD Tuesday or Wednesday night (TBD)
- Women in Engineering Day - Thursday, February 23rd (TBD)
- Networking and Closing Reception - Thursday night, February 23rd (TBD)
- High School Day - Friday, February 24th (LA DWP)
Since we've done this a few times before, we have a good outline for what is needed - but there are still a lot of logistics to plan for each activity. There are a variety of tasks for committee members with all levels of availability to assist with... and no experience is necessary! The committee will meet about once a month after work Downtown for the next few months and likely more often as the event gets closer. There will also be an opportunity for some school visits prior to the event.
Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 29th and dinner will be provided. Please let us know if you can attend or if you are interested in getting involved but unable to attend.
(Note: There will be a call for volunteers to assist with the actual events as they get closer. This announcement is strictly for those looking to assist on the planning committee)
