National Council Votes to Develop a Model for Board Certification of
Structural Engineers:

At the Eighth Annual Meeting of the National Council of Structural Engineers
Associations (NCSEA) on Saturday, September 16, 2000 in San Antonio, Texas,
NCSEA took a precedent-setting step regarding board certification of
structural engineers.   NCSEA voted to have the ad hoc Certification
Committee, formed to study the feasibility of certification, become a
standing Certification Committee, to develop a model for board certification
of structural engineers.  Upon completion, the certification model will be
presented to the NCSEA membership for action. 

NCSEA previously passed a resolution supporting the concept of separate
licensing of structural engineers.  The proposal for certification would
keep licensing of structural engineers with the states but would promote
specialty certification by a board of professional peers, similar to the
method used by the medical profession.
