Engineering Committee 

The Engineering Committee is committed to providing a platform dedicated to our Engineering members. Maintenance technicians and building engineers are encouraged to join for FREE, get involved, and benefit from all the resources available to them. We welcome maintenance, engineering, and property management professionals as well as vendors interested in MEP, the trades, and blue tech topics to attend engineering events, luncheons, and shop talks.

Leadership "Shop Talks" 

Leadership meets monthly to discuss latest trends and plan future engineering events. If you are a Chief Engineer or higher, please email to join our monthly shop talks. Leaders are necessary to steer the committee and bring value and share knowledge and expertise.
