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

The EANC is always looking for programs.  Please let us know if you would like to present an interesting technical topic at one of our monthly meetings.

Please consider joining the Association.  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.

The 2016 form is still valid for signing up!
