Please see the following message for the Engineering Ministries International Conference:
My name is Jeff Austin and I am a U of I CE Grad from 2002. After practicing as a structural engineer for several years, I joined staff with Engineering Ministries International in 2012 (EMI), first serving in Uganda for 6 years and now working in our US office in Colorado Springs. EMI is a faith-based interdenominational development agency which mobilizes engineers, architects, surveyors, and construction managers to use their skills to serve the poor in the developing world as we live out our core values of design, discipleship, and diversity. Since our founding, EMI has served in over 1500 projects in 100 countries including schools, medical clinics, and clean water projects. I wanted to write because EMI is coming to the Chicagoland area this fall.
Every year, EMI puts on a conference and this year, we will be hosted at Judson University in Elgin. The conference will include a number of plenary sessions and over 40 workshops (many with continuing education credit) on various technical and global engineering topics. The conference will be held on October 10-12 and you can learn more about the conference at: https://emiworld.org/us/events/emi-conference. The registration information is all online and there is an Early Birth discount through 8/31. I have also attached a flyer with information and was wondering if you would be willing to distribute that at Newmark so that Illinois faculty and students can hear about the opportunity? Please let me know if you have any questions. I would love to help.
