At chapter functions, members can network with others who represent all segments of the plumbing engineering, design, construction, and services industry. Chapters produce newsletters, conduct monthly technical meetings, and provide opportunities for education, professional development, and information sharing to help the membership stay abreast of current trends, code changes, and technologies in the plumbing engineering profession.
