Want to get involved?
Here are a few great options for getting started!
Our next meeting is planned to be a social gathering on Tuesday, October 24th. We will keep the new project conversation going from the September meeting and give additional new persons a chance to get involved. We are hoping to establish regular meetings for the new project in the coming month or so including this social event.
This meeting will be held at Modist Brewing Co. in the North Loop. We have reserved two high top tables in the main taproom area for our group. They do not have full food at the taproom but do usually have a food truck that operates primarily at their building. I believe that outside food is allowed also.
Date and Time: Tuesday, October 24th at 6:30 PM
Location: Modist Brewing Co.
505 N. 3rd St., Minneapolis, MN 55401
Parking: Mostly on-street parking in the area; cheaper meters are available on 2nd St, north of Washington Ave.
Officers for 2018
Chapter officer positions are open for 2018, and you can “apply” to be an officer based on the position descriptions attached. We will take in all applicants, and if there is more than one applicant for a position, we will conduct an email vote for that position. Please feel free to contact me with questions. Respond to this email with your name and your desired position by Friday, November 3rd.
If you are on the fence, please consider offering to help out in the marketing, fundraising, or other support roles. We can pull you into a supporting role and build you up to a chapter leadership position in the future. In all honesty, we are also looking to bring new leadership and ideas to the President role

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!
