The world finds itself today in a crisis unlike any in recent memory. While members of the engineering profession are facing the same uncertainties as everyone else, NSPE’s volunteer leaders and staff are firmly committed to doing the very best we can to help you through this very difficult time.
As you strive to stay on top of your professional and personal life remember that NSPE is a resource for you.
Watch this video message from NSPE Executive Director Mark Golden, “Dark Days Shine New Light on Profession, Community.” It is an early look at his column for the May/June PE magazine.
Engineers are involved in everything. You may not be the people the public sees on the front line, but you are always there, supporting and contributing to the quality of life of every person, every day, in important ways. Often, however, these contributions can only be fully appreciated after the fact.
At the time this is being written, we are in the midst of a global pandemic. By the time you read this, things will hopefully look much brighter and more hopeful.
Nonetheless, as professional engineers, right now is a true test of our commitment to health, safety, and welfare. PEs are uniquely qualified to address many of the problems faced by society in the wake of the coronavirus breakout. This is especially true as we move forward to a time of rebuilding to recover from the crisis. (And we will recover.) More importantly, it is true as we work to prevent something like this from ever happening again. It is important, now more than ever before, that we band together and use all the resources provided to us through our community.
This crisis has forced us to learn to carry on in new ways, when the traditional work environment has been taken away from us. And the professional engineering community has responded heroically. Every day you are continuing to do what you can, overcoming challenges and disruptions—and what you can do is proving to be a lot.
