Design Professionals Day at the State House

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

Register by April 29 at:  http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DesignProfessionalsDay2011

There is no charge for MALSCE members to participate in this event. 

 

On Tuesday, May 10, 2011, MALSCE members will gather at the Massachusetts State House for our Annual Design Professionals Day at the State House along with leaders from other engineering and design-related associations. 

 

Schedule for the day: 

12:30 - 1:10 PM:  Sign in at The Engineering Center, pick up materials, light lunch available
1:10 PM:  Walk to the State House, go through security
1:30 PM - 2:00 PM:  Briefing in Room B-2 (location is subject to change)
2:15 - 3:15 PM:  Appointments with your State Senator and your State Representative, based on where you live and vote.

 

These associations are co-sponsoring Design Professionals Day at the State House:

  • American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) 
  • Boston Society of Civil Engineers Section/ASCE (BSCES)
  • Massachusetts Association of Land Surveyors and Civil Engineers (MALSCE)
  • And several other groups

We arrange for meetings with our members’ Massachusetts State Representatives and State Senators based on where our members live and vote.  Since the new legislative session just started in January 2011, we are currently identifying  the priority bills for this year, but our advocacy will focus generally on these issues:

  • Infrastructure Funding
  • Dam Safety
  • Harnessing Private Sector Innovation (support for Contracting Out: Design Work Done By Private Sector Engineering Firms)
  • Other:  TBD

Register by April 29 at:  http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DesignProfessionalsDay2011

 

We set up meetings for you with your legislators.  Or, if you are new to the event and want to partner with others who have done this before, we’ll pair you up with engineers and land surveyors and you’ll join them for their legislative appointments.

 

We hold advance issue briefing sessions to help you prepare to discuss the issues.  You can participate in an issue briefing session at The Engineering Center or by conference call.

An important part of our Advocacy efforts is Design Professionals Day; the one day each year when we as a profession gather in force at the State House and present our industry's viewpoints in person to our local legislators. It is a chance for each of us to meet with your State Representative or Senator to discuss issues pertinent to our industry, to you as an individual professional, and to you as a citizen. MALSCE sponsors and coordinates this event annually to promote communications with our state legislators, arranging appointments, providing briefing sheets on key issues for MALSCE members to utilize, and establishing teams of local residents to meet with their actual legislators.
