I am supportive of a Public Information Campaign Task Force (PIC TF) that will work to educate the public about the value of professional engineering. The results of the task force assessment were brought to council earlier this year. The PIC TF submits their final report to Council in the fall with recommendations to implement a Public Information Campaign.
Engineers have an accountability to the public but sometimes our value to Society is not recognized. Engineers do a lot of positive things for Society and this should be advertised. We should not only be in the public eye for negative events (when incidents and accidents happen).
