The National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE) is now offering a Licensed Design Professional membership category. The NATE Licensed Design Professional membership category, effective immediately, is a membership category dedicated specifically to individuals who provide engineering and design services to the wireless and broadcast tower industry.
“The new Licensed Design Professional membership category will allow NATE to bridge the gap between the design community and construction community during a time of explosive growth in wireless infrastructure deployment activities across the globe,” stated NATE Board of Directors member Bryan Lee from Hellertown, Pennsylvania.
Dues for the new membership category are $500 annually and are available for individuals only. As part of the membership application process, the Licensed Design Professional is required to submit their Professional License stamp on the NATE Membership Application in the designated area of the form.
“The establishment of the individual Licensed Design Professional membership category will help create a prominent platform and voice from the design community directly to NATE at a time when industry standards continue to play a more significant role in enhancing safety and quality,” stated Member Services Committee Chairwoman Jordyn Miller from Gulfport, Mississippi. “Through the addition of this new membership category, NATE is once again demonstrating that our membership encompasses the entire wireless communications tower ecosystem,” added Miller.
