Each spring, BSCES co-sponsors Engineers and Land Surveyors Day with the American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) and the Massachusetts Association of Land Surveyors and Civil Engineers (MALSCE). Engineers and Land Surveyors Day is an important part of BSCES’s advocacy effort relative to infrastructure investment in Massachusetts and other issues that might impact the civil engineering profession.
This annual event provides members the opportunity to gather in force in the State House to meet with their state representative and state senator to discuss issues pertinent to our industry and profession so that the voice of the engineering community can be heard. The Engineering Center Education Trust (TECET) coordinates the event on behalf of the sponsors, arranges appointments with legislators, and hosts briefing sessions prior to the event in order to inform participants of the issues to discuss with legislators and/or legislators’ staff.
The Government Affairs & Professional Practice Committee develop briefing materials that are provided to each legislator. It has also developed a Raising the Grade in Massachusetts report to increase the awareness of the state of our infrastructure in the Commonwealth. The report focuses attention on the state of our roads, bridges, water/wastewater systems, schools, and other infrastructure that support our economy and quality of life. This document highlights some successes and current shortfalls of our infrastructure networks. There is an undeniable connection between infrastructure investment and economic growth. It is important that the engineering community help to educate the general public and our legislators as to the importance of designing, maintaining, and funding our infrastructure in a sustainable manner.
