Chapter 54 Membership

Have you wished you could get professional recognition for your experience and skills as a construction estimator? Perhaps you supervise estimators and you would like your staff to be more professional. Maybe you’re an independent estimator who provides estimating services for others. Or perhaps you’re a user of estimating services as an owner, architect, engineer, or government agency, and would like to be assured of receiving professional estimates. Perhaps ASPE is the organization for you! Read on and call today for a membership application.

A History of Dedication

The American Society of Professional Estimators began in 1956. What started with fewer than 20 members in the Los Angeles area can boast today of thousands of members in chapters from border to border. ASPE was created with dedication and commitment to the idea of providing its members with tangible benefits:

  • professional society which promotes the highest standards and ethics in the practice of construction estimating.
  • Continuing education through seminars and lectures on construction-related topics. Our magazine, The Estimator, and local chapter newsletters carry technical, industry-related and other pertinent articles for the professional estimator.
  • An opportunity to become recognized as a Certified Professional Estimator (CPE) through the completion of our training and testing program.
  • A means of personally communicating with fellow professionals on a monthly and annual basis, providing an opportunity to exchange information and gain professional recognition for yourself and your company.
