PCEA Triangle Chapter #3

The Triangle Chapter of the Professional Construction Estimators Association was the 3rd Chapter chartered, after the Charlotte and Triad Chapters.  The Triangle Chapter was chartered in 1966.  The first Chapter President was Joe Edwards, Jr.  They grew steadily from the beginning, reaching a peak in membership of 255 members in 1990.

The chapter began providing scholarships to students in the Civil Engineering Cirriculum at North Carolina State University in the early 1980's.  In 1985, an endowment was established at NCSU to fund these scholarships.  Since then, the chapter has expanded its scholarship offerings to students at Wake Technical Community College, Durham Technical Community College, and Vance-Granville Community College.  Additionally, endowments were established at East Carolina University and UNC-Charlotte.  In 1996, the endowment at NCSU was increased to fund a second scholarship.  This scholarship was named the J. Kyle Cave Memorial Scholarship.

To support these scholarships, the Triangle Chapter has held many fundraisers over the years from Golf Tournaments to Raffles.  Most recently, the Chapter has been holding a Spring Golf Tournament and Fall Sporting Clay's Event to support these scholarships.
