There is NO other society that works for the individual licensed engineer like NSPE does. This is our strength, our legacy and what every engineer needs to know.

I joined as a student member - joined a couple committees at the state level in Minnesota and got to know a lot of people that way and realized this was a community of professionals I wanted to be a part of, and wanted to make part of my career.
