    Joint Engineers Conference - JEC
    JEC CONFERENCE
    Wed, November 06, 2019 @ 10:00 AM — Fri, November 08, 2019 @ 12:30 PM
    THIS EVENT IS 100% FREE!

    As a result of our wide geography and dispersed population many professionals across the state are active members of multiple engineering societies. The Montana Joint Engineers Conference (JEC) is the collective effort of our discipline-specific professional societies to offer high-quality education to meet the Montana State P.E. license continuing education requirements.


    The JEC brings the opportunity for engineers of all disciplines to further their knowledge and education within their own field as well as the chance to expand their breadth of experience to other areas. Seven concurrent educational tracks offer sessions in Civil, Structural, Electrical/Power, Mechanical/HVAC, Transportation, Construction and Project Management disciplines over three days. Attendance for the complete conference will garner all 15 PDHs necessary to meet the Montana requirement for annual development hours.

    Registration: Open
