03 Aug Happy Professional Engineers Day!
Just about every day one of my daughters informs me of what day it as determined by a Snap Chat they witnessed earlier in the day. National Ice Cream Day, National Sisters Day, National Bring Your Dog to Work Day, etc.
But did you know that there is a National Professional Engineers Day? Well guess what, TODAY IS THE DAY!!!
The NSPE Website states the following:
On August 8, 1907, the first professional engineering license was issued to Charles Bellamy in Wyoming. Since that time, licensure has expanded and professional engineers across the U.S. have made the commitment to protect the public health, safety, and welfare. NSPE is celebrating licensed professional engineers with the first annual Professional Engineers Day on Wednesday, August 3, 2016. Join us as we raise awareness about what it means to be a PE, recognize licensed PEs, and show appreciation for the work they do each and every day.
