TSPE is a State Society dedicated to the interests of PEs across disciplines and recognize your professional goals and dedication. More of your membership dollars are going to your state to support enhancing the value they provide through local member engagement, advocacy, and outreach activities.

In Tennessee, there is a concerted effort underway to slash regulation of occupational licensure in numerous professions. We have successfully protected the PE license thus far, but continued vigilance is necessary. Many of our members hold licenses in multiple states, and the erosion of licensing in any state could spread like wildfire.
We provide resources to members, potential engineers, and the public regarding the PE license:
