The candidate must be a Duluth Section Member in good standing as of January 1, 2024, a spouse of a member, or a child of a member. The application can be found in this newsletter.We encourage all eligible applicants to apply!
Getting rolling this year, I look forward to seeing you all on the 16that Barr Engineering for our monthly luncheon. Zach Lucas(JF Brennan) will be presenting on the TainterGate Replacement project in Scanlon for Minnesota Power at Noon.
