Michigan Society of Professional Engineers
On May 10, 1946, forty-five engineers from around the state met to organize the Michigan Society of Professional Engineers, which was incorporated on September 30, 1946. Michigan was the twenty-fourth state to organize such a society. The society promotes licensure of engineers as a safeguard to the public's life, health and property. It includes engineers in government, industry, private practice, construction and education. In 1987, the society had 2,550 members.
