New NSPE President Tricia Hatley Welcomed in PE Magazine

Oklahoma Division Manager Tricia Hatley, PE, F.NSPE, is set to be installed as president of the 26,000-member National Society of Professional Engineers on Aug. 1 — in a virtual ceremony because of the coronavirus pandemic.

In the July/August issue of PE magazine, she uses her first President’s column to talk about responding to the challenges of the times and focusing on people to make the engineering profession stronger and more inclusive.

She writes: “My long involvement at the local, state, and national levels convinces me that it is the people — regardless of skin color, gender, religion — who enable us to make a difference. And by investing in growing our membership, especially by bringing in creative young professionals, we can ensure that NSPE remains a vibrant, relevant organization that helps both our members and our profession thrive.”

Trish is a Freese and Nichols Vice President/Principal who specializes in designing highway and urban roadways and in drainage analysis.
