NSPE was established in 1934 to realize a simple but vital goal: create an inclusive, nontechnical organization dedicated to the interests of licensed professional engineers, regardless of practice area, that would protect engineers (and the public) from unqualified practitioners, build public recognition for the profession, and stand against unethical practices and inadequate compensation.
Much has changed since then, but NSPE’s fundamental commitment to this vision, articulated at its founding, remains unchanged.
The NSPE Strategic Plan is developed by the NSPE Board of Directors in collaboration with NSPE’s representative House of Delegates. It is not a static document. Rather, it is a commitment to ongoing, open and transparent strategic planning and execution.
