Day of Training

The 8th Annual Day of Training in Fayetteville was the largest in the event's history. Thanks to a variety of sponsors, the Northwest Arkansas branch was able to host a broad and diverse program covering construction, drainage, ethics, insurance, transportation, water and wastewater. The Branch was also able to fund $3,000 in scholarship funds to outstanding UA Civil Engineering students.
