Emerging Professionals


In 2018, SFPE established the Emerging Professionals (EPS) as a subcommittee to the Continuing Professional Development Committee. The goal of EPS is to engage members who are early in their career by providing opportunities for networking, guidance, and continuing education. Additionally, EPS aims to advocate for their members to ensure wider representation amongst the other SFPE committees and the profession at large.

Emerging Professionals is comprised of SFPE members who are new to the profession and wish to network and meet other young professionals. Emerging Professionals is the place to share ideas, facilitate SFPE's mentoring program, plan networking events, and other activities that benefit and support aspiring engineer and those new to the profession.
