The international society of explosives engineers

Welcome to the home of the Best in the West! This site was created to bring together two great chapters of the International Society of Explosives Engineers, The Northern Plains Chapter and the Black Hill Chapter, and one great conference, The Best in the West Drilling and Blasting Conference.

This site was constructed to make it easier for individuals or companies to pay membership dues, register for the Best in the West Conference, stay in touch with upcoming events, and keep up to date with the drilling and blasting industry.

So please take some time and navigate through the site. Don’t forget to check the sponsorship page. These companies help support both chapters and without their help this web site would not be possible.

We would also love to hear from you. Give us your thoughts by clicking on the contact us tab and send us an email.

Thanks again for visiting our site.
