It is the policy of PENC and the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) that members be recognized for years of service to NSPE and the profession, by the granting of a reduced amount for national dues, as set forth in Bylaw 11 and further described below.

  1. A member shall be eligible for retired-member status if the person has been a continuous member of NSPE for a period of 25 years, is at least 65 years of age, and has retired from active practice. For these purposes, "active practice" shall mean providing engineering consultation totaling more than 300 hours in a given calendar year.
  2. A member must apply for status as a retired member by written request to the executive director of PENC (Betsy Bailey). Age and years of service will be confirmed by PENC and NSPE prior to granting life or retired dues status. Members who wish to be granted retired member status are entrusted to honor the provision concerning active service as stated above.
  3. A member granted retired-member status shall receive a waiver of one-half of dues annually.
