We hope that you and your families are staying safe and healthy!
As we patiently wait to be able to get back to normal, I would like to say thank you to the staff that has continued to work during this time and their support for NAPE. They are always committed and dedicated during this unprecedented time.
Also, I would like to say thank you to all of our members for their support during this time, and for all you do as essential personnel for your organizations. Engineers across the country are working to keep buildings operating safely and efficiently despite COVID-19. As these events surrounding COVID-19 continue to change rapidly, our members remain fully dedicated to the safety, health, and well-being of their colleagues, customers, tenants, and residents.
You will notice various changes in the way NAPE membership looks, as well as new practices and protocols. For one, we are releasing this edition of the National Engineer in digital format. This major benefit of membership will continue while we deal with this pandemic in this new format. Please be sure to share this with your colleagues so they can see one of the many benefits of membership. Also, we unfortunately will be postponing the National Convention until next year, as social distancing will make our convention nearly impossible. We look forward to getting the delegates together for a full two day convention next year! Lastly, we are offering an amnesty program for members that have not renewed their membership due to the coronavirus and will be waiving reinstatement fees.
As always, NAPE is here to support you, so do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions.
Again, it is an honor to be the National President and I look forward the possibilities the next two years will bring.
