About our Club
The Electrician club consists of First and Second year Electrician students who are enrolled at Ridgewater College. Board Members are elected within the Electrician student body and consist of a President/Public Relations, Vice President, Secretary/Treasurer, and 2 members from 1st year and 2 members from 2nd year.
The Electrician Club tries to make several field trips per year. Past trips have included:
Fibrominn, Benson, MN
Benson Ethonal Plant, Benson
Excel Energy Center, St. Paul
Sherco Power Plant, Becker
Suzlon Wind Generator maintenance facility, Pipestone
Midwest Electrical Expo, Minneapolis
Sugar Beet Plant, Renville
The Electrician Club also partakes in the Adopt-a Highway program sponsored by the Minnesota Dept. of Transportation. We currently clean a 2 mile stretch of Highway north of Willmar, MN 2 times per year.
The Wiring of Habitat for Humanity houses has also been an important part of our "giving back" to the community.
