On Saturday, March 20, Ohio’s newest Professional Engineers, Engineer Interns, Professional Surveyors and Surveyor Interns gathered to receive their official State licenses at the Ohio Engineering & Surveying Certificate Ceremony. I am very proud to say that my husband was one of those new Professional Engineers!
The ceremony was held by Ohio Society of Professional Engineers, headquartered in our state’s capital:
From the OSPE’s website: OSPE is the single, most powerful voice representing all branches of the engineering profession. We are devoted to the non-technical concerns of all of Ohio’s professional engineers, regardless of specialty or employment. The National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) and Ohio Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE) are on the firing line of the profession. We protect your profession by vigilantly monitoring government regulation and legislation.

SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO: On every trip we take to Columbus, we try to fit in a visit to see my oldest friend in the world Erin. This was no exception and she took us to a great local place for lunch. A restaurant review is on the way!
