This year, these award-winning events include Los Angeles Engineers Week (E-Week), High School Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition (PSBC), Student Night & Job Fair (SNJF), and the Western Region Younger Member Conference (WRYMC 2017). Membership fees and allocations have consistently only covered about 10% of our costs, and the rest comes from the fundraising efforts of our dedicated volunteers and the generosity of our corporate sponsors.
