Wysack reminded the Board Members to check their state email address regularly as it is
now the source of communication with the Department. She stated that the state email
address will soon be used as the User ID for Egress, so it is important to get in the habit of
checking the email on a regular basis. She asked that the Board add her work cell number
to their phones to assist with easier communication.
MacIntosh stated that the Bureau will hold the next new Board Member Training on
February 18, 2021. All Board members are welcome to attend.
James McLaughlin with Kettering University asked the board to enhance the continuing
education rules to include non-traditional engineers. He stated that there is an increased
cost of completing continuing education.
Christoph Lor with the American Society of Plumbing Engineers stated that he was
looking for the Board to endorse a plumbing examination option as part of the mechanical
engineering examination with NCEES. MacIntosh stated that the Board could not supply
support for or against this policy decision, as it lacks the authority to do so, since it is not
an entity that is separate and autonomous from the Department, unlike other states. Lor
asked if the request could go to the Department for consideration. MacIntosh sated that
he would pass along the request.
The next regularly scheduled meeting will be held May 12, 2021 at 11:00 a.m., at 611 West
Ottawa Street, Upper-Level Conference Center Room 3, Lansing, Michigan 48933.
MOTION by Dodge, seconded by Fobes, to adjourn the meeting at 12:18 p.m.
