This article is intended to encourage you to make a financial contribution to EVERgreen Watch in support of WSPE’s participation in the Architect & Engineers Legislative Council (AELC). We need to raise approximately $3,000 to $4,000 toward our continuing support of this legislative coalition effort that we initiated back in the early 1970’s. AELC greatly heightens the awareness of the A/E professions in the state legislature.
AELC is the component organization made up of the following organizations: ACEC WA, WSPE, LSAW, ASCE, SEAW, IEEE, ASLA and AIA. AELC monitors all legislative and regulatory bills introduced in the State Legislature that impact the engineering profession. Without this vanguard organization, we would be subject to the whims of any legislation being promulgated by special interest groups such as the trial lawyers. Note that we have some major legislation coming up this fall including a joint Sound Transit/RTID transportation funding package involving approximately $15B over the next 20 years. If this legislation is passed through the legislature, it will serve to significantly improve the quality of life in the Puget Sound area and also be a boon to the economy.
WSPE’s interests involve such things as licensing, A/E selection (using QBS), professional liability, government contracting out, taxes, infrastructure funding, tort reform, liability reform and education. We have benefited greatly over the last 30+ years by being a part of this highly visible, collaborative organization of approximately 10,000 design professionals.
Please support this EVERgreen Watch with personal checks or an online donation of $25, $50, $100, or more if you can afford. Inasmuch as we do not generate enough money from WSPE dues to support EVERgreen Watch, we really need your financial support! This contribution is not tax deductible so you will need to check with your tax advisors. Please donate online using the donate button below or send your donations made payable to Washington Professional Engineers Political Action Committee, 4800 NW Francis Drive, Silverdale, WA 98383. Thank you in advance for any personal contribution that you make. If you have any general questions regarding the EVERgreen Watch, please either contact Ken McGowan at 425.564.8400, extension 8411
