UNITE member boards

Jan. 20, 2017 - FS and PS committees at NCEES. Surveyors set up photo.

NCEES formed in 1920 when 7 of the 10 U.S. licensing boards came together to form a national organization to facilitate licensure mobility—making it easier for a professional licensed in one state to practice in another. It focused on developing uniform examinations, enhancing cooperation among the state boards, and encouraging the adoption of similar requirements for licensure among states.

Today, the organization is made up of 70 licensing boards that regulate the engineering and surveying professions in the United States—located in each U.S. state, the District of Columbia, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The goals established for the first Council meeting in 1920 remain central to the NCEES mission almost a century later.
