TSPE Statement on COVID-19 and Office Changes

Wednesday, March 18, 2020  
Share |

As the world responds to the coronavirus, TSPE would like to express its concern for our members, staff, and all who are affected by this pandemic. 

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus/COVID-19 recommendations and requests of the government, the TSPE office will be closed until March 30 and at that time we will reevaluate if we need to extend further.  Staff will continue to monitor their emails to the best of their ability during this time.

Licensed professional engineers are obligated to hold the public health, safety, and welfare above all other considerations. This principle is fundamental to the mission of TSPE.

Accordingly, we continue to monitor international, national, state, and local developments arising from the outbreak. To protect our employees, members, and other customers, we are taking all appropriate steps, consistent with the guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, while maintaining the maximum level of operations in the performance of our services.

In response, TSPE emphasizes the following:

  • All nonessential TSPE meetings have been postponed or adapted for virtual meetings.
  • The TSPE Conference and 84th Annual Meeting (June 17-19 in Frisco) remains on schedule at this time.
  • Chapters are monitoring events and recommendations in their communities and making decisions based on that information. Many local meetings have already been canceled or postponed.

Professional engineers play a vital role in society, but often behind the scenes. They design, construct, and maintain the critical infrastructure that keeps the US moving—water, power, transportation, to name just a few. And they keep us healthy through their work in areas like medical facilities, agriculture, and biomedical engineering. We extend our gratitude for their technical expertise, problem-solving ability, and ethical commitment.

TSPE staff and volunteer leaders will continue working daily to assess the fast-changing situation and will move quickly to adjust our policies as appropriate.
