President's Monthly Chapter Message

Our April 17th dinner meeting will be presented by Prof. Eric Smith of the Tulane Energy Institute at the A. B. Freeman Business School on the “Industrial and Business Outlook for Louisiana and the Nation”. With the increase in economic activities in the US in the areas of manufacturing, energy and technology along with the trade and tariff implications on the world stage, this topic and discussion should be of high interest for our members. For registration to this meeting please click here.

Our March 20th meeting was our Spring Engineering Ethics program. The specific topic was, “The Practice of Engineering in Louisiana and Following LAPELS Rules and Laws Governing Licensure for PE’s”. The meeting was held at the Southern Yacht Club as a luncheon and was well attended; we had over fifty in attendance. The presenters were Mr. Joe Harman, PE a LAPELS Technical Consultant and Mr. William Hyatt a LAPLELS Investigator. They gave us insight on some common pit falls that could result in a board investigation and possible fines and what to do to avoid these problems and to understand the proper use of our PE Licenses. They covered what types of engineering work and practice is considered part of the industrial exemption and what is not.

If your company is still interested in being in NO-LES Chapter Sponsorship Program for our 2018-2019 program term year, we launched a great deal in January, a “Half Price for Half the Year Sponsorship” program. This will allow a company to get in on our web site and have their company logos displayed at our remaining five meetings for this term, please find more details here.
