Join Us at a Chapter Meeting or Event
If you’re interested in learning more about the Minnesota Professional Chapter of Engineers Without Borders, or think you’d like to get involved, join us at one of our meetings! We typically meet the last Thursday of the month at the St. Anthony Falls Laboratory in the auditorium, which is on the main floor at the end of the hall. There is free parking in the SAFL lot, which is on the south side of the road down the street from the St. Anthony Main restaurants and shops.
Upcoming meeting times/dates can be found here. Chapter meetings are great opportunities to network with other Twin Cities professionals in an informal setting. If you’d like to receive email updates about our Chapter activities, just send us a note using the form at the bottom of the page.
Become a Member
As a member of the Minnesota Professional Chapter of EWB-USA, you can join the ranks of 14,700 passionate individuals who volunteer their time to more than 286 dedicated chapters across the United States working in 39 countries around the world. Our membership represents a breadth of engineering disciplines and industries. Our work, though anchored in engineering, requires a range of skill-sets, from health and medicine to graphic design…we welcome all individuals who would like to support our cause! To become a dues-paying member of our chapter, you can visit the “Become a Member” page on the EWB-USA website .
Be a Mentor
EWB-USA student chapters, including our local University of Minnesota student chapter, are in need of professional engineers to oversee the technical aspects of their community development programs, share design and industry experience, and to provide overall project guidance. As professional chapter members, we have the unique opportunity to mentor the next generation of engineers, and to make a lasting difference in the lives of others. The University of Minnesota Chapter has on-going programs in several different countries–each with its own mentoring needs. If this sounds like an interesting opportunity and you’d like more information, you can send us a note via the form at the bottom of the page or check out our Projects page.
Not an Engineer? Not a Problem!
The Minnesota Professional Chapter welcomes members from of all backgrounds, from marketing and event planning to graphic design and health and safety. Active projects are always looking for a new perspective on how to aid a community, and each project needs support from the chapter. If you’re not specifically interested in helping out on an active project, we can always use help with planning fundraisers and socials, producing videos, putting together slide shows and posters, and monitoring budgets. Come to a monthly meeting to learn more!
