The National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveyings (NCEES) 99th annual meeting looked a bit different this year. As Dean C. Ringle, P.E., P.S., concluded his one-year term as President of the organization, every aspect of the annual meeting was done virtually, including officer and CEO reports, elections, and the business session.
"While the structure and content of the meetings have varied over the last century, the focus has remained the same: to decide issues vital to engineering and surveying licensure in order to safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of the public, stated Ringle". NCEES acknowledged Ringle's service as President with an award which was also presented virtually. Congratulations to Mr. Ringle on completing his Presidency with NCEES. Christopher Knotts, P.E., of Louisiana, was installed as the new NCEES president.
