The Engineers PAC is YOUR PAC
The mission of the Professional Engineers of North Carolina is to protect the professional engineering license which in turn promotes a safer, stronger and more vibrant North Carolina. PENC is the only organization that fully represents your PE license.
The Engineers Political Action Committee (E-PAC) is moving in an exciting new direction. PENC has participated in E-PAC for over two decades and continues to view the PAC as critical to its core mission. Recently, PENC leadership announced their intention to cover the full administrative costs of E-PAC. This PENC/E-PAC partnership reaffirms our commitment to protect the engineering profession from harm and support legislators who understand the criticality of licensure and responsible practice.
In an effort to be the voice of ALL PEs, one of the proposed changes is to reduce restrictions on who can serve as a Trustee, opening seats on the Board to any E-PAC contributor who is a member of an engineering organization or is actively licensed and in good-standing as a PE in North Carolina.
