Civil Engineering Faculty Member to Lead State Licensure Board
A civil engineering faculty member has been elected president of the state governing body for engineers and surveyors.
Rod Williams, university professor of civil engineering, has been elected to serve as president of the Arkansas State Board of Licensure for Professional Engineers and Professional Surveyors after previously serving as vice president of the board.
"I am honored and pleased to have been elected to serve as the board's president this year," Williams said. "We are embarking on a challenging period with challenges relating to the state of Arkansas' efforts to restructure the Governor's Cabinet, streamline governmental processes, re-vamp occupational licensing requirements and embrace the red-tape reduction movement.
"We are continuing in our efforts to make the licensing and license renewal process as efficient and painless as possible and endeavor to keep our constituents 'in the know' about regulatory changes at the local, state, and national level," he said.
