Membership for Unemployed Engineers

Being unemployed should not prohibit you from taking advantage of the many benefits PENC membership offers. Studies show that the membership in a professional association is actually most beneficial to those who are in between jobs. This is the ideal time for you to explore what we have to offer, and we have a membership that allows you to do just that.

Unemployed engineers who have never been members of PENC/NSPE before are eligible for one year of State-Only Associate membership at a special annual rate of just $50.00. This membership entitles you to all of the standard benefits that PENC offers, including:*
  • Access to the PENC Career Center
  • Access to timely and relevant information through PENC's newsletters and publications
  • Advocacy efforts at the NC General Assembly
  • A subscription to the Professional Engineer, PENC's quarterly magazine dedicated to engineering in our state
  • Discounts on in-person professional development events
  • Discounts on online professional development opportunities
  • Access to a powerful statewide network of colleagues
  • Participation in educational outreach programs
*This membership does not include any benefits offered through the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE).
