Guidance for ASPE Members During These Uncertain Times

The American Society of Plumbing Engineers is dedicated to protecting the health, welfare, and safety of the public—and that starts with our members. We want to help you stay safe and also productive wherever and however you are conducting business these days, so we have developed this proactive guidance webpage with resources to help address many of the needs and concerns of our members.

We want to assure you that the ASPE Staff and Board of Directors are taking all precautions to help stop the spread of this disease, including implementing a work-from-home policy for our Staff and suspending all Society-related travel until it is deemed safe again.

As a Staff, we also are taking steps to minimize any impacts on our operations as we strive to maintain all member services during this period as best as possible. The best way to communicate with Staff is via email. Should you need to phone, please leave a voicemail and our Staff will follow up as soon as possible. Additionally, for members needing to renew their membership, or if you know someone wanting to join ASPE, please do so online at
