126th Annual NAPE Convention in Philadelphia - July, 2008
During its 126th year as a professional association, the National Association of Power Engineers will bring its national convention to Philadelphia in July of 2008. Tracing its roots back to 1882 to a group founded by Henry Cozens, Chief Engineer of the courthouse of Providence, R.I., NAPE’s primary focus is the education of engineers and securing the enactment of engineer license laws to prevent the destruction of life and property in the generation and transmission of power resources.
With Chapter located throughout the United States, NAPE’s educational programs and licensing initiatives help to ensure public safety and raise the proficiency levels of thousands of engineers. The recently, re-born Philadelphia Chapter of NAPE sponsors monthly educational forums, in Havertown, on the second Tuesday evening of each month.
This year marks the second time that NAPE has held the national convention in “The City of Brotherly Love”; the first time being in 1906. The meeting will feature two days of educational opportunities which will be open to public participation.
