October Letter from the President

The past few months have been trying for our organization. The building discussion has dominated many meetings for most of my time as president.

Letter from the President

As we ramp up activities across the state, let’s keep the vision of what we are doing in the forefront of our minds. With every decision we make at the state and local chapter we need to be asking ourselves, “does this decision promote licensure?” and “does this decision elevate the public awareness of the work that our fellow PE’s and members are doing?” As most members know, the journey to achieve our vision is not an easy one. Fernando Arze-Peredo, PE, used to tell me, “if you are doing this job because you want a pat on the back,...

Letter from the MSPE President

After many strategic planning meetings last year, I was left with one remaining question, what is the identity of MSPE? Our organization is comprised of a diverse group of individuals who represent engineers in construction, private practice, government, higher education and industry and across many disciplines. I have asked myself many times, “does MSPE have one uniting principle?” As I continued to ask myself why this organization exists, it led me to ask why does our organization do the things it does, and what is our motivating factor? After a year’s worth of deliberation I settled on one principle that...
