The National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) was established in 1934 to realize a simple but vital goal: create an inclusivenontechnical organization dedicated to the interests of licensed professional engineers, regardless of practice area, that would protect engineers (and the public) from unqualified practitioners, build public recognition for the profession, and stand against unethical practices and inadequate compensation.  The Virginia Society of Professional Engineers (VSPE) was established in 1936 to facilitate that goal on a statewide level.
