Board of Governors

NICET's Board of Governors (BoG) meets twice each year to set strategic goals and establish operating policies for NICET. Board members serve in a volunteer capacity. Seven are knowledgeable in the fields of engineering and engineering technology, while the eighth represents the general public.

Board members are selected by a nominating committee and confirmed by the Board. It is a multi-faceted process that includes vacancy announcements issued by NICET, the Interest Groups of the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) and other engineering societies including the American Society of Certified Engineering Technicians. Self-nominations by NICET certificants and NSPE members are also accepted. A term on the Board lasts three years, and Board members may serve up to two consecutive terms.
