Public Outreach

Presentation Request

People having a meeting

In addition to its roles in regulation, licensure and enforcement, the Board also has a public outreach function.

  • Board members and agency staff speak to students about the engineering and surveying professions, the benefits of choosing them as a career path and the importance and responsibility of professional licensure for both engineers and surveyors.
  • They explain the path to licensure for those further along in their education.
  • They speak to the public regarding the public service and protection role of licensure.
  • They also speak with licensees and others in related professions about proper practice as defined by Mississippi statutes and rules, and they answer questions regarding the complaint process.

Requesting a Board member speak to your middle or high school class, college students or association is as simple as providing topic, date (or date range), audience and length of presentation information in a communication to the Board office. The Board will do its best to fulfill all such requests, based on availability.
