NCEES formed the Emerging Engineers and Surveyors Group to connect young engineers and surveyors with NCEES decision makers to provide feedback on the licensure process and discuss topics relevant to the future of the engineering and surveying professions. The group includes students, engineer and surveyor interns, and professional engineers and surveyors under the age of 35.
The group met for the first time at the 2015 annual meeting. Bradley Roberts, a professional surveyor and member of the group said, “I think this group is going to help the licensure process in ways regarding awareness of licensure and the promotion of licensure. I think we are going to have a positive impact on the profession.”
Other members explained becoming a member of this group made NCEES and licensure more real to them. “Being selected as a member of this group makes NCEES tangible to me now. It’s something I can be a part of instead of just taking an exam and having letters after my name. I’m now part of a group that can institute change from the inside,” said Renee Daniel, E.I.T.
“I think we have a voice and the young generation can be heard.”
