Demco Automation was a Silver Sponsor for the 2013 Engineers Week event in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania. On February 22, the Lehigh Valley Engineering Council (LVEC) hosted the Lehigh Valley Engineers Banquet that coincided with events by 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 Mr. Mark Sarkisian, PE, SE, LEED presenting the topic “Civil Engineering and the Future of our Environment”. Awards were presented by the Pennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers (PSPE) for Engineer of the Year and Young Engineer of the Year.
