The Edmonton Association of Technical Societies (EATS) was created in 1997 "to collectively share information and coordinate and promote technical and social activities to facilitate networking and learning opportunities." To date, this has been done by coordinating one fall dinner/trade show annually. All Edmonton technical societies are members of EATS.
