Inland Empire Section


  • The Inland Empire Section meets monthly from September through May in the Spokane metropolitan area.
  • We have lunch meetings, normally held on the third Thursday of the month, with the Annual Banquet in January.
  • The Section and technical committees frequently sponsor workshops and continuing education opportunities throughout the year.
  • The revenue from these seminars are used to award scholarhips to college engineering students.
  • Through WSDOT Adopt-A-Highway program, we have adopted two miles of Interstate 90 just west of Spokane where we do litter pick up service about three times a year and need more volunteers to help.





Please renew your ASCE Membership for 2018 and include your dues for the Inland Empire Section!


Next Section Luncheon planned for Thursday, March 22nd at Hotel RL for a presentation by Sue Niezgoda (Gonzaga professor) about recent work using beaver dams as sediment filters to clear up Hangman Creek.


"Dream Big" film viewing planned for April at WSU.  Check out the calendar of events.


The Inland Empire Section will be hosting the 2018 Region 8 Fall Assembly.  This will be a great event to host other ASCE engineers from multiple states and welcome them to the beautiful Spokane area.  Help is needed to plan venues for hotel, dinner, meetings, and technical tours.  Those who are interested to help with this historic event should contact Bob Turner.
