Our Purpose

The Engineer's Association of Nevada County (EANC) was founded in its present form in 1990 for the purpose of promoting awareness and appreciation of the engineering profession, earth sciences, and related fields, by keeping current on changing science and regulations, by encouraging students, and by honoring exemplary engineers and quality projects in the community.


Please help us by becoming a paid member of the association, and attending our monthly meetings.  Membership dues fund our scholarships and outreach events, such as Lyman Gilmore's Flight Day.

In the News

Thank you to Jake Russell for a great presentation on Geocell technology in Guam.  Well done!

It is time to start thinking about the Project and Engineer of the Year awards.  Nominations are always welcome.  The project needs to be local, with a local engineer in a responsible posiition.

Consider joining the Association.  Please complete a membership application and either bring it to a meeting or mail it to us at the address on the form.  Membership fees fund scholarships, Science Fair Awards, and other community-related engineering outreach.
