WELCOME TO ASPE Des Moines Chapter 73

Welcome to the American Society of Professional Estimators serves construction estimators by providing education, fellowship, and opportunity for professional development. Education, Ethics, Standards, Certification, Fellowship… these lead to the ultimate goal Professionalism. We think you’ll agree… If all estimators were more professional, budget and other problems of the construction industry would be greatly reduced.

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.
