Section History:

Originally this area was considered part of the Red River Subsection of the Twin Cities Section and was basically inactive. The energy boom in the 1970ís caused a significant increase in the number of electrical engineers in this area.  Several engineers decided it would be beneficial to form a new subsection to serve new and existing members in the area. 

Sometime in August 1977 three engineers combined their resource to start the process of forming a new subsection. They were Matt Schwarz (SSR), Don Hinkle (Finley), and Bob Newell (Basin Electric). A petition signed by 21 local IEEE members was submitted to National in November 1978 to form the Missouri Slope Subsection of the Twin Cities Section, and our status as a subsection was approved April 1979.

As membership numbers grew it was decided to become a separate section altogether. So in December 1984 a petition signed by 50 members was submitted to National to form the Missouri Slope Section.  That was approved February 22, 1985.
