Business and Professional Development Committee

Professional Development Committee is responsible for organizing activities that help develop the LACBPE member's professional career. This committee sponsors in coordination with the College Relations Committee a review course for those members and college students preparing to take the Engineer-In-Training (EIT) examination.

This committee also sponsors review courses for members taking the Professional Engineering (PE) exam in mechanical, electrical and civil engineering. The Council's "Job Bank" is also maintained and operated within this committee.

The Business Development Committee promotes business development among Black engineers through networking, teaming up among members and other firms, meeting with decision makers, publicizing business opportunities, and addressing business issues. We conduct meetings regularly with senior level management from leading engineering firms and executives from government agencies. These have lead to greater business opportunities for our members. In addition, we review and comment on proposed legislation and other issues related to minority engineering activities.
