August 3, 2016 marks “Professional Engineers Day,” a virtual event aimed at celebrating the talents and work of professional engineers.
Professional engineers have made it their mission to protect public safety, health and wellness, and the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) is holding Professional Engineers Day to recognize and celebrate the contributions they make to our society each and every day. Professional engineers also put a great deal of time and effort into maintaining licenses and continuing their education.
Getting involved in Professional Engineers Day is an opportunity to celebrate the way your career has grown over the years and join with peers to talk about cutting-edge projects, discuss changes happening in the industry and encourage the next generation of engineers.
What will the event include?
The National Society of Professional Engineers is crowdsourcing this event, encouraging professional engineers and firms to celebrate the event in their own ways and post content under the hashtag #LicensedPEDay to connect with others on social media. The society provided some ideas for how engineers can get involved, including posting photos or videos of why you became an engineer, taking pictures or video of your engineering team or holding an educational event highlighting why engineers should care about licensure.
There are plenty of ways to celebrate the first Professional Engineers Day, and RedVector is proud to support individuals or firms who are working to continue their education and maintain their licenses.
