    Greater Chattanooga Region Navigating Challenges Including the Pandemic

    Monday, December 14, 12:00 - 1:00 pm

    As we enter the holiday season, the Chattanooga Engineers’ Club (CEC) will come alongside the Chattanooga Area Food Bank in an effort to give back to our neighbors that are in need. As we enter this Christmas Season, we invite other Engineering Societies and Technical Organizations to join us as we schedule a volunteer day at the local Food Bank as well as promote efforts for additional food drop-off locations throughout the Tennessee Valley. We also encourage all of the societies and organizations to join us on CEC’s final program of 2020.  Melissa Blevins, President and CEO of the Chattanooga Food Bank will provide a year-end update to the Chattanooga Engineers Club on December 14th. She will share how 2020, with pandemic for our nation and storms hitting this area, presented more challenges, and how the organization and volunteers can rise to those challenges. Ms. Blevins’ experience in leading non-profit organizations includes Girls Inc from 2017 to 2020.  She was also the Director of Operation with the food bank for many years.  She was also a safety coordinator with Beaulieu of American and a production supervisor with McCain Foods.  She is a graduate of Covenant College with a BS in Business Administration.

    Please register in advance for this meeting (no PDH) -

    In addition to the volunteer opportunity, we encourage all local engineering firms, public and utility engineering departments and other consulting firms to host your own in-house food drive and forward photos of your successful food drives to CEC so we can recognize your incredible efforts during our 2021 E-Week events. The Chattanooga Engineers’ Club intends to promote the food drive from early December through our 2021 E-Week scheduled for the week of February 15, 2021 and announce total food poundage collected shortly thereafter via our social media outlets.

    It is our sincere hope that each of you will join us in this much needed effort to help our neighbors in a very serious time of need.

    CEC Meeting

    Monday, January 11, 2021

    12:00 noon

    Preserving the Cradle of Southern Appalachia

    As a tri-state organization governed by a cross-disciplined Board of Trustees, Thrive represents the voices of a region courageously dismantling the binary concept that development only occurs at the expense of our natural treasures.  In fact, Thrive inspires responsible growth by building relationships and connections to help communities plan for growth in a way that celebrates their natural assets. 

    Thrive Regional Partnership serve the 16-county region that includes northeast Alabama (Jackson and Dekalb), northwest Georgia (Catoosa, Dade, Murray, Walker and Whitfield), and southeast Tennessee (Bradley, Hamilton, Marion, McMinn, Meigs, Bledsoe, Sequatchie and Rhea).

    "Thrive Regional Partnership is a visionary organization. It shows people how things could be through collaboration." — Terry Reynolds, CEC past president

    Join us to hear more about Thrive's Tri-State, collaborative landscape conservation blueprint, "Preserving the Cradle of Southern Appalachia".


    Bridgett Massengill, President & CEO or Thrive Regional Partnership

    E Week 2021 Luncheon

    Monday, February 22, 2021

    12 noon

    National Engineers Week is an annual event to raise public awareness about engineering and the contributions that engineers make to society. It is also a time for engineers to emphasize the importance of learning math, science, and technical skills. In particular, it provides a time to:

    • Celebrate how engineers make a difference in our world
    • Increase public dialogue about the need for engineers
    • Bring engineering to life for kids, educators, and parents

    Engineers Week was founded in 1951 by the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE). It is among the oldest of America’s professional engineering outreach efforts.
    “In concert with more than 70 engineering, education, and cultural societies, and more than 50 corporations and government agencies, the Chattanooga Area of Tennessee officially opens Engineers Week with a Kick-off Luncheon on Monday, February 17, 2020 at the UTC University Center. It will be followed on Thursday, February 20 with the traditional Awards Banquet at the Marriott Downtown Ballroom. Both events are open to the public.

    While “Engineers Week” suggests only a week-long event, it has, in fact, become a year-round commitment to making a difference in this area. For example, Manufacturers Day was held in October of last year and the Regional Science Fair will bring the “week” to a close in March of this coming year, 2020.

    Luncheon this year will be led by Grady Stout, immediate past president of Chattanooga Engineers Club

    Our keynote speaker for the 2021 luncheon will be Robin Kemper. Robin has built a career with an array of diverse and extensive structural engineering experience in design, analysis, and forensics focused on buildings. Her work has included being a project manager of both structural engineering and multi-discipline projects ranging from field investigations to field inspections during construction. She is vastly experienced in new construction, additions to buildings, historic projects, structural condition surveys, analysis and retrofitting of existing buildings, response to failures, forensics, expert testimony, and installation of solar projects.

    Mrs. Kemper is currently a professional engineer in NJ, PA, NY, MA, TX, OK and is a member of NCEES. She is also a LEED Accredited Professional and certified as a NJ Special Inspector.

    Thanks to Denise Rice of Peak Performance / E Week 2021 technology partner, registration is now open -
