Professional Practices & Ethics Committee
Ron Dunn, Chairperson
Members: Kelly Calder, Don Barker, Kent Rich
The primary responsibilities of the Professional Practices and Ethics Committee are to promote professionalism and improve public safety of buildings through specific activities as directed by the SEAU board. This includes investigations of reported malpractice by structural engineers, working with DOPL and other
agencies to develop procedures and evaluation tools, and coordinating efforts with other committees with similar or related activities. One of the objectives is to promote a professional image consistent with the performance and responsibilities of structural engineers such that compensation is equitable.
