    • SDES Eastern Chapter Newsletter



    I am contacting you because of your previous support of the South Dakota Engineering Society (SDES) Eastern Chapter.  Are you interested in continuing your support by purchasing an advertisement in our monthly newsletter?


    The Eastern Chapter sends out an electronic newsletter to all members each month before our chapter meetings.  Chapter meetings are typically the second Tuesday of the month running from September through May.  Newsletters are distributed to over 200 members of the chapter and are also posted on the SDES website. 


    Revenue generated from advertising is used to support our Chapter’s activities, which include sponsoring scholarships to engineering students from our area and sustaining the MATHCOUNTS competition. MATHCOUNTS is a national program that promotes math education to middle school students by sponsoring team and individual math competitions.

    This year, we have two options for including your advertisement in the newsletter:

    • A business card sized ad (roughly 2" high x 3" wide), included in each newsletter for the year (Sept - May), for $75
    • A full page ad (roughly 10" high x 7.5" wide), included in one newsletter, for $75. This may be used to announce a new office location, invite members to an open house, celebrate a firm's anniversary or special award, etc. This ad can be in addition to your monthly ad and can be used any time throughout the year. Multiple full page ads can also be purchased.

    Additional information regarding the size and format of your ad will be sent in your confirmation email.

    Thank you again for your interest in sponsoring the SDES Eastern Chapter. If you have any questions, please contact me at or call 605.977.7753.

    Thank you to those of you who attended our Virtual PDH conference on September 10th and 11th! We hope you enjoyed and learned from the presentations, and were able to find many items to take back to your day to day role as an engineer in our region. Your attendance at the SDES conferences continues to make future conferences possible, while also enhancing the scholarship programs that support future engineering professionals. Please see the follow-up items regarding PDH certificates, recorded sessions and other items below.

    A special thank you to our speakers, who not only spent a half hour to an hour presenting to us, but also put in countless hours in advance preparing their presentations, running through practice sessions with our planning team and helping us reduce any technical glitches, as much as possible. We appreciate your willingness to share your knowledge and expertise!

    And, of course, thank you to our sponsors for their generous support of SDES and the Virtual PDH Conference! Without your continued support, programs like the PDH Conference would not be possible.

    Conference Follow-Up Items

    PDH Certificates

    • For registrants who attended the conference live, PDH certificates will be sent out over the next few weeks.
