FBPE representatives spoke at a luncheon of the West Coast Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers’ Structural Engineering Institute on Thursday, June 20, at the Columbia Restaurant in Tampa.

FBPE Executive Director Zana Raybon briefly discussed the history and role of the Florida Board of Professional Engineers, then talked about the changes engineers and engineering firms can expect when HB 827 goes into effect on Oct. 1, 2019.

Board member Dylan Albergo, PE, explained the Board’s Rules Committee, on which he serves, and presented three case studies of engineering complaints that resulted in disciplinary actions and lessons that could be learned from those cases.

Both answered questions and listened to comments from the engineers at the luncheon.
