Pacific Southwest Conference 2014 hosted by San Diego State University’s American Society of Civil Engineers

Dear EERI San Diego members and friends,

     We are proud to announce San Diego State University’s student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) will be hosting the 2014 ASCE Pacific Southwest Conference (PSWC) from April 3rd to April 5th. A total of 19 ASCE student chapters, professional industry engineers, faculty advisors, and volunteers will be attending this exciting event.

     Students will apply their civil engineering knowledge and team dynamics to the test by competing in a variety of activities such as Concrete Canoe, Steel Bridge, Surveying, Geotechnical, Quiz Bowl, and much more. At this year’s ASCE PSWC, our student chapter ranked 6th out of 17 schools. We are very excited to have another successful year on our very own campus!

Our goal is to make this conference the most memorable experience! As the host of the 2014 ASCE PSWC, we are responsible for planning, budgeting, and running the entire event. Our projected expense budget is $112,000. We are in need of raising $22,000 through sponsorships and fund raising events. Funds would be used for venues, catering, apparel, conference materials, printing/advertising, and making initial deposits. Enclosed is our sponsorship registration form. Your donation would help us achieve our financial goals.

San Diego State University’s student chapter is registered as a sub-group of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) San Diego Section. The ASCE San Diego Section is a 501(c)(3) IRS tax exempt non-profit organization. All donations are 100% tax deductible.
