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...

October Letter from the 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,...
