NSPE releases policy on Autonomous Vehicles

NSPE represents licensed professional engineers who, under state licensure laws and rules, have a responsibility for protecting the health, safety, and welfare of the public, above all other considerations. With the introduction of autonomous vehicles, automation is poised to become a much larger part of our transportation environment. Much of the discussion to date has been on the technology, its capabilities, and the perceived public benefits. However, many questions remain unanswered by industry, which has led to uncertainty within the public regulatory environment. To address this uncertainty, NSPE proposes the outcome-based standards below, based on careful consideration and deliberation, as...

January Letter from the President

It’s a new year and that means it’s time to move forward! MSPE is moving forward by focusing our efforts on improvements to services for our members. In particular, we are focusing on increasing membership and increasing member engagement. Increasing membership: Our membership committee and Board will be working on increasing our membership at the state and local levels. Our state and local officers discuss how to go about this task often. A common question being asked in those discussions is "why do you belong to MSPE?" Maybe some of you haven't asked yourself this question. This topic reminds of...

The taped webinar is now available on the NSPE website to all members.

December Letter from the President

It’s hard to believe that 2017 is coming to an end. This has been a year of change and progress for MSPE. We made some big decisions and some not so big, but all important to the future of the organization. Probably our most significant decision that will create change, was the decision to sell our headquarters building in Lansing. Believe me, this was not an easy or quick decision, but one that I am sure will benefit the organization in the future. As MSPE has changed over the years, so has the need for physical space. With the decision...

Emergency Action Preparedness Seminar

Register Now for the Dec. 14, Seminar in Grand Rapids. The complexity of managing emergencies, coupled with the growing need for multi-agency and multi-functional involvement on incidents, has increased the need for a single standard incident management system that can be used by all emergency response disciplines. The Incident Command System provides an important framework from which all stakeholders public and private can work together. In any major incident, many local, state and federal agencies as well as private sector resources may become involved and must coordinate response. The challenge is to get the various agencies to work together in...
