Engineers' Club Holds Order of the Engineer Induction in Conjunction with Annual Meeting

On June 19, the Engineers’ Club inducted four engineers into the Order of the Engineer. The Order was first initiated in the United States in 1970 to foster a spirit of pride and responsibility in the engineering profession and to present to the public a visible symbol identifying the engineer. Following an explanation of the History and Significance of the Order and the Significance of the Ring, Susan L. Best, PE, Executive Director of the Club, led the new inductees and those previously inducted, in the Acceptance of the Obligation. Those accepting the Obligation of the Engineer were Theresa deLise, Devonne M. Jackson, PE, Colette F. Montague, PE, and E. Mitchell Swann, PE, LEED AP. They were presented with a stainless steel ring to wear on the 5th finger of their working hand as a reminder of the obligation.

More information on the Order of the Engineer is available on their website.

Following the induction, the attendees enjoyed a networking reception, where good fellowship was had by all. The evening concluded with the Club’s Annual Meeting, which included the presentation of the inaugural Mulford Volunteerism Award to Colette Montague, PE of Urban Engineers, Inc. and Kathryn P. Russo, PE, PTOE of Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson, Inc. Click for more information on these awards
