The society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) was founded in Los Angeles, California, in 1974 by a group of engineers employed by the city of Los Angeles. Their objective was to form a national organization of professional engineers to serve as role models in the Hispanic Community.
The concept of Networking was the key basis for the organization. SHPE quickly established two student chapters to begin the network that would grow to encompass the nation as well as reach countries outside of the United States. Today, SHPE enjoys a strong but independent network of professionals and student chapters throughout the nation.
We would like to invite you to our next general meeting. It will be this coming Thursday May 25th at the Google office in San Francisco. We will allow time for people running for board positions to give their speech on their qualifications. We will be providing drinks and snacks. Hope we can see you there!
Membership is open to all individuals who believe in the mission and goals set forth by the organization. SF Bay Area SHPE does not discriminate based on occupation, ethnicity, or any other classification. The chapter welcomes individuals and corporations alike to join together to fufill the mission and goals of SF Bay Area SHPE.
