Professionals overcome Pandemic

E-Week 2021 looked a bit different this year for a number of reasons. First being the COVID related impacts and social distancing guidance. But that did not stop the 61 Professional Engineers (PEs) that problem solved their way through the challenge. For some, this meant incorporating an exciting new activity, “The Lorax-Engineers Speak for the Trees.” This virtual activity allowed many schools to participate in the 2021 event when they otherwise would have been required to skip the 2021 event. Reports from those schools indicate the new activity was well received! Overall, the PEs and teachers brought engineering to life for 101 3rd grade classrooms across Wyoming. Whether they live-streamed or presented in-person, the PEs showed up! Many PE’s took on multiple classrooms and some at the same time. The virtual delivery allowed some PEs the chance to present to classrooms outside their home area. In total, 2,423 students were impacted!! The pictures below depict the many adaptations for the 2021 E-Week. Enjoy!!

Appreciation is given for all the Professional Engineer's willing to take on Eweek even with all the COVID challenges this year presented. For those that have reached out and are already considering 2022 we appreciate all the comments and want you to know that going forward we are going to combine the best of all past activities for more success next year. Be watching your inboxes for more information.

WES 2021 Convention Annual Report

On Thursday, February 11, 2021, Wyoming Board of Professional Engineers and Professional Land Surveyor's Vice-Chair Jeff Fuller, PE presented an Annual Report at the Wyoming Engineers and Surveyors Society (WES) 2021 Convention. The report shared information on who represents the Board, its purpose and creation and how it carries out its mission . The report also shared licensing numbers for the year end of 2020 and the new Wyoming resident interns and licensees.

The link above or found here provides you with the report.

Be Aware: Scammers Targeting Professional License Holders

State licensing boards and professional license holders should to be aware that scam callers are targeting those who hold a professional license. Scammers call the professional licensees claiming that one's licenses is "under investigation" and at risk of being immediately suspended if the licensee does not pay a bond. Caller ID may even display the legitimate licensing office's phone number that has been spoofed by the scam callers.

The Wyoming Board of Professional Engineers and Professional Land Surveyors will never call their licensees and demand immediate payment or threaten members.
