2000 ASEE Annual Conference & Exposition

St. Louis is often called the Gateway to the West, but in June, the city also became the gateway to the best that engineering education has to offer. More than 1,800 educators descended on the home of the Arch and Mark McGwire's Cardinals to take part in the 107th ASEE Annual Conference & Exposition, which featured a record number of speakers. Highlights of the four-day event included the Society-wide picnic at the St. Louis Zoo, the first-ever multimedia session, and the ASEE Annual Awards Banquet, which included a gourmet four-course dinner that drew raves.

Next year's conference will be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
