Thank you to this month’s Sponsors! 

We are currently seeking a sponsor for student dinners!
AEG can provide an itemized receipt for student dinner sponsorship. Email an AEG officer if you or your company is interested.

The monthly chapter meetings are held on the 2nd or 3rd Thursdays of every month, unless notified otherwise. 

Due to increased costs at Sure Stay, and following an extensive search of competitive venues in our area, we have moved our monthly meetings to the Courtyard by Marriott Downtown Riverside. Catering services are currently not offered at the venue, and meeting prices have been reduced significantly to reflect this change. We hope you will understand these changes and will continue to support the Chapter.
