Membership Benefits

What value is proposed for prospective members of this organization? The following are examples of the benefits of membership in the SUE Association:

Professional Practice:  The SUE Association will provide networking events, forums, and opportunities for discussions and information sharing to promote the highest level of business, ethical, professional and technical practice (procedures, technology, law, legislation, and trends) in furtherance of best practices; and promotion of ASCE Standard 38-02.

Continuing Education:  Through conferences, workshops, seminars webinars, and other media and venues, the SUE Association will provide continuing education for its members to maintain and advance their professional, technical and business skills, keep current with state-of-the-art practice, and better serve their clients and the public.

Advocacy: SUE will implement education and information programs to enhance the understanding and use of SUE services by clients, stakeholders and targeted audiences, as well as legislators, regulators and the general public through public relations, communications, and advocacy.

Certification: Inasmuch as there is not uniform state licensing law governing SUE practice, the SUE Association will explore a SUE certification program.  A certification has the potential to authenticate that individuals have demonstrated a level of competence and experience that provides the public and clients a level of confidence that the SUE practitioner in responsible charge of their projects is an individual who has personally met established professional criteria.

Risk Management: The SUE Association will develop insurance and education programs to assist members with liability and risk management.
