Terracon's Thunberg Elected President of NH Society of Professional Engineers
MANCHESTER, NH Terracon announces that Carl W. Thunberg, PE, Geotechnical Department Manager, will serve as President of the New Hampshire Society of Professional Engineers (NHSPE) for 2016 - 2017. Thunberg's goals as president are to recruit younger members to leadership roles within NHSPE, provide excellent continuing education events for NHSPE members, and to continue tracking the New Hampshire legislative docket for bills that could potentially threaten the safe practice of engineering by licensed professional engineers.
NHSPE is the local chapter of a larger national organization, the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE). NSPE was established in 1934 by a group of professional engineers dedicated to advocating for professional licensure, the ethical and competent practice of engineering and enhancing the image and well-being of licensed professional engineers. They are the only national organization committed to addressing the professional concerns of licensed engineers across all disciplines.
A member of NHSPE since 2012, Thunberg previously served as Vice President and President-Elect. In addition to his role on the NHSPE Board of Directors, Thunberg is also a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
Thunberg holds Bachelor of Science degrees in Civil Engineering and Hydrology from the University of New Hampshire (UNH) and is a licensed professional engineer in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New York, and Vermont.
