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 and supporting engineering, geoscience, and planning 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 the Nevada County STEAM event.

In the News

Two of the three scholarship recipients have provided proof of enrollment, and checks have been cut for them.  Congratulations to both!

The EANC is pleased to announce that Sean Jackson, of Jackson and Sands Engineering, will be giving a talk that he presented at the Capital Chapter of ASCE on Rebuilding Paradise.  The meeting will be next Thursday August 26, starting just before noon.  As usual, lunch will be available for $10 for those who RSVP.

Please come out and support the EANC and enjoy lunch and networking! 

The meeting will be from noon to one o'clock, at the Nevada County Contractor's Association at 149 Crown Point Court, Grass Valley, up in the Whispering Pines Industrial Park.

Note that the County is now recommending masks for indoor gatherings.  We can also open up the doors and windows if the smoke isn’t too bad.


Rebuilding Paradise

About the presentation

The Camp Fire of 2018 devastated the Town of Paradise and surrounding areas.  This presentation will give a brief overview of the aftermath of the destruction, from clean up efforts to creating safe drinking water to rebuilding the Town.  You will be informed of efforts currently underway.
