Hi California Engineers!

Meeting virtually is not a replacement for face to face meetings, but complements those interactions by allowing our members to connect across the wide expanses of our wonderful state.

Curious about our new virtual meeting & collaborative document platform but don't want to be overwhelmed by technology? No fear! 

We'll be hosting a few 30 minute help sessions for CSPE Members throughout November and December.

Also, our next CSPE Lunch Break will be November 10 at 12:00 noon via our virtual platform. 

Check your email for the upcoming October 2017 edition California PE Matters Newsletter for details on how to sign up for the tech help sessions as well as the November Lunch Break.


Austin, Cynthia & Ken
