Our people – simpler version


The Engineering Leadership Council is a non-profit organization with a volunteer Board of  Directors, volunteer speakers and one full-time staff position.  This structure enables professionals to volunteer a bit of their time and expertise, yet still have a big impact.

The Engineering Leadership Council was founded by Pam Rogalski and Jody Rechenmacher; two professional engineers who are driven by a desire to increase meaningful opportunities and tools so all engineers can better serve our communities.
