A message from your Board President

Welcome to the Mississippi State Board of Licensure for Professional Engineers and Surveyors.  These are certainly times of change and we hope that all are weathering it well.  This board is also experiencing change as reflected in our recent rules upgrade, Attorney General representation as well as Staff and Board Member changes.  We hope you will feel free to comment via our new outreach avenues such as LinkedIn and Twitter and that you like the look, feel and ease of use of our new website.

Everything occurring is, of course, the work of those who have dedicated many hours of their time over years of service to the Board and the professionals it represents, some changes being set in motion years ago by members and staff who have since returned to private or other pursuits, but who deserve our heartfelt thanks.  The loss of institutional knowledge is painful to those of us remaining, but please know that this Board and its Staff are working hard to represent and improve our professions and to provide you with courteous and efficient service and assistance.

It is an honor to serve on this Board and I encourage each of you to participate in the leadership of your respective professional associations.  Many may not be inclined to put themselves “out front” so to speak, but the rewards of service are numerous and lead one to become better at any endeavor.

Sincerely,

Richard Tolbert, P.S.

Board President
