Demco Automation Sponsors 2016 Engineers Week Event

2016_Engineers_Week_Logo_VerticalDemco Automation was a Gold Sponsor for the 2016 Engineers Week event in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania. On February 26, the Lehigh Valley Engineering Council  (LVEC) hosted the Lehigh Valley Engineers Banquet that coincided with events by DiscoverE (formerly the National Engineers Week Foundation). LVEC is an umbrella organization of engineering societies spreading enthusiasm for the profession among future generations and developing opportunities for enhancing the professional development and recognition of area engineers.

This year’s speaker was Andrei G. Jablokow, PhD presenting the topic: Think Like an Engineer, Speak Like a Leader.

Awards are presented by the Pennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers (PSPE) for Engineer of the Year and Young Engineer of the Year.
