*** January Membership Meeting ***
On January 6, 2015,
Coastal Bend Joint Engineering Societies Meeting 
In association with 
American Society of Civil Engineers
Texas Society of Professional Engineers
American Institute of Chemical Engineers
Project Management Institute Coastal Bend Chapter
Water Environment Association of Texas/Texas American Water Works Association
Presenter:
Daniel Wong, P.E
President of the Texas Board of
Professional Engineers

Topic:
Engineering Excellence and the Industrial Exemption
The featured speaker is Daniel Wong (President of the Texas Board of Professional Engineers) who will speak on Engineering Excellence and the Industrial Exemption.  This topic is of special interest to engineers in industry because the exemption allows them to do engineering work without a Texas Engineering license.

In many states, engineers who work in industry providing engineering services are exempt from license requirements (being a PE). This exemption is currently being debated in Texas. 

How does this affect us as Project Managers?  There is currently a shortage of Professional Engineers (per NSPE only about 20% of engineers are licensed).  If you have a project that will now require a PE certification - it may affect the cost & schedule in providing engineering designs & construction approvals.

Please come and provide your input about this very important matter
