Discipline Specific vs. Generic Licensure: How Should Structural Engineers be Licensed – as Professional Engineers or as Structural Engineers?
This webinar will include discussions of: the history of discipline specific versus generic licensure in the various US licensure jurisdictions; NSPE’s longstanding policy supporting the generic licensure of engineers as Professional Engineers; the goals and current legislative activities of structural engineering organizations including NCSEA and ASCE SEI; and alternatives other than discipline specific licensure that might be considered to accomplish some of the structural engineers’ objectives while remaining consistent with NSPE’s policy. NSPE’s recent “talking points” guidance on this topic, a joint effort of the NSPE Licensure and Qualifications for Practice and the Legislative and Government Affairs Committees, will be discussed.

Engineering Education Outcomes: NSPE’s Professional Practice Initiative
This webinar will present NSPE’s Position Statement No. 1752 on engineering education outcomes. NSPE has begun an initiative to advocate that engineers who become professional engineers should attain outcomes in the following professional practice areas: leadership; risk and uncertainty; project management; public policy; business aspects of engineering practice and sustainability. Each of these outcomes will be defined in the presentation, and the status of NSPE’s advocacy in this regard will be discussed. Presenters: Craig N. Musselman, P.E., F.NSPE and Jon D. Nelson, P.E.

Strategies for the Modification of State Engineering Statutes
This webinar will present and describe the recent guidance issued jointly by the NSPE Licensure and Qualifications for Practice and Legislative and Government Affairs Committees on strategies to consider when modifying state engineering statutes. This guidance describes typical state legislative processes and provides recommendations on forming coalitions within the engineering community, crafting legislation, and proceeding through the legislative process. Each state is very different politically, but there are some common strategies which should be considered.
