Celebrate Licensure and the Profession on PE Day

Wednesday, August 2 – ALL DAY

All attendees are invited to celebrate the seventh annual Professional Engineers Day in person at the conference. The first professional engineering license was issued to Charles Bellamy on August 8, 1907 in Wyoming. Since that time, licensure has expanded and professional engineers across the U.S. and internationally make the commitment to protect the public health safety and welfare. 

Share your on-site photos and selfies as part of the online virtual event using the hashtag #LicensedPEday on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or LinkedIn. Share your reasons for being a PE and give special recognition to your colleagues and teams. 

Prepare for the celebration and gear up by visiting the new PE Day Logo Store. The shop features a variety of items including many styles of t-shirts and accessories such as mugs, notebooks, tote bags, wall prints and, even phone cases.
