Welcome to PSPE
Philadelphia Chapter
Pennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers

Philadelphia Chapter is dedicated to serving all licensed professional engineers and our promotion of the publics health, safety and welfare.

We provide courses at our meetings and elsewhere to assist member and non-members to keep current in a variety of fields and meet requirements for the mandated 24 PDH credits required by the State. We work to have our courses also accepted by other states including New York.

We assist professional engineers to network with others of their specialty and across specialties. We discuss and debate topics of interest to engineers forwarding our unified or diverse findings to the State organization to share with our Legislators.

We are the leaders of several programs designed to encourage and prepare our youngest citizens to consider a career in engineering. We are a resource to assist young Engineers in Training to apply for, study for, and become licensed Professional Engineers.

We are PSPE Philadelphia.
Come join us to further your profession
and further your career.

PSPE Legislative Activity

PSPEs lobbyists have been busy at the capitol. Following are highlights of some issues on which they are working. Complete details can be found on the PSPE website under Legislative Activity.

Discussed at our State Annual Conference:
HB 1704 Amendment to Registration Act
Other legislation recently discussed:
SB 1268 Autonomous Vehicles
HB 1421 Professional Licensure


NTSB Targets States With
Public Utilities Licensure Exemptions

The National Transportation Safety Board is standing firm in its support of a PE role in gas pipeline safety. The agency issued an investigation report that includes two critical recommendations. First, that all 31 states with license exemptions for public utilities eliminate the exemptions. Second, that a professional engineer be required to review and approve gas pipeline construction and maintenance of documents.
  The NTSB sent formal letters to the governors of the states with license exemptions for gas pipeline operators, urging them to end those exemptions and asking for the governors to provide an update within 90 days.
  The following states do not require a PE on natural gas pipeline projects: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Wyoming.

We need your ideas to help improve our chapter in its mission. Remember "TURNING IDEAS INTO REALITY IS OUR BUSINESS"
