NSPE-Led Coalition Delivers Message on Responsible Licensure
In August, NSPE announced the creation of the Alliance for Responsible Professional Licensing (ARPL), a coalition of advanced professions that is focused on informing lawmakers and the public about the importance of rigorous professional licensing standards.
In combination with its longtime efforts defending the PE license, the Society has been leading the charge to educate policymakers about the importance of standards for complex technical professions, such as engineering, that affect the public health, safety, and welfare.
Below is some additional information from ARPL that you can help promote.
