As New Jersey’s state society of NSPE, we strive to represent, serve, and empower the state’s engineering professionals. Thinking about joining? We’ve compiled a list of benefits you can expect as a member of the New Jersey Society of Professional Engineers!
Protect your license
Since the start of 2016, 26 states, including New Jersey, have introduced legislation and/or regulations that would erode and even destroy PE licensure as we know it today, all in the name of job creation. NJSPE empowers its members to advocate for the future of professional engineering.
The NSPE website regularly offers resources to PEs regarding threats to professional licensure, such as the NSPE Advocacy Center, and State Watch, which alerts PEs to active and potential threats to PE licensure that have been introduced to legislative session.
Promote the profession
Being a local member gives you access to a national network of people who champion the PE license and defend threats to it. This raises awareness of the profession and encourages tomorrow’s workforce.
NJSPE is celebrating the seventh annual Professional Engineers day on August 3rd. Learn more about how you can promote and celebrate the profession with us next month here!
Meet continuing education requirements
For your convenience, NJSPE is offering educational resources that include in-person, electronic, and in-office courses. Gain access to free webinars, discount pricing on conferences and one-day events, and information on how and when to complete your continuing education credits to renew your license.
NJSPE is committed to providing courses in and around the tri-state area that will cater to those with multiple licenses and differing state requirements. View our available CE opportunities here!
Receive up-to-date news
We provide our members with the most up-to-date information on a variety of platforms, including social media, monthly newsletters, PE Magazine, PE Scope, blogs, emails and so much more. All these resources are easily accessible to members on the NJSPE website.
We make ethics a priority
Ethics are a crucial part of professional engineering. We track and discuss ethical issues with the Board of Ethical Review, offer ethics continuing education courses, and even have an ethics hotline.
Enhance your professional knowledge
We’ll help you understand the laws and regulations that define issues affecting professional engineers. You’ll also receive half off on EJCDC contract documents to reduce errors in construction.
Receive membership discounts
Members receive discounts on continuing education, industry publications, and products from Office Depot, UPS, Citrix, Lenovo, and Avitru. Discounts also apply at certain insurance companies.
Support future engineers
We constantly try to inspire and shape the next generation of engineers. We participate in Engineers Week and MATHCOUNTS, as well as fundraising activities for the NSPE Educational Foundation.
Connect with fellow PEs
Whether local or national networking is your style, becoming a NJSPE member will help you. NJSPE holds several events during the year and our national organization has online member communities. For an upcoming local networking opportunity, join us August 1-3 for this year’s Professional Engineers conference!
Located in Center City Philadelphia, this year’s Professional Engineers Conference is just a stone’s throw away for our members here in New Jersey. PECON attracts 300+ professional engineers from all over the United States for networking, educational sessions, exhibits, and presentations by industry leaders.
