Northwest Branch

To facilitate networking, professional development and advancement of the civil engineering profession.


Service Area
Benton, Boone, Carroll, Crawford, Franklin, Madison, Newton, Sebastian and Washington counties

The Northwest Branch meets the first Wednesday of every month, at noon, at AQ Chicken House in Springdale. Exceptions to monthly meetings occur in March, July, September, and October.

In March, we conduct a Day of Training that provides a great opportunity for civil engineers to network with industry leaders, learn about new and interesting developments within the profession, and earn up to 7 Professional Development Hours. All proceeds go towards scholarships for civil engineering students at the University of Arkansas. In May, we have a Spring Social at Baum Stadium to watch baseball and meet with U of A students. We skip the July meeting to celebrate Independence Day. In September, we have a Fall Social at US Pizza in Fayetteville to network with the U of A Civil Engineering students. We do not have a monthly meeting in October, to encourage attendance at the State meeting.
