    i just mean to say that I disagree with this interpretation. My reasoning here.
    a few questions remain:
    if aware, would his employer allow it
    would the employer have his employee do the work on behalf of the firm

    not informing: that is a big problem, likely grounds for dismissal and board sanction

    from your nspe interpretation
    this is his out:
    The remaining questions asked whether the consultant could send the municipal official a professional resume and arrange a personal visit.

    the muni official is in essence giving him permission/requesting him to contact them

    my questions
    if they answered they had a relationship and not to contact them, and he did, is that a violation?

    that info is from my alma mater

    The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.

    Agreed on all points re: having to inform employer.

    The soliciting comment is taken under consideration. There is some that is left up to interpretation and that is sometimes enough to not even take a chance. However there is a right way to find work.

    Neat to see that the available resource is from your Alma mater.

    it's tricky waters
    alot depends on if a party wants to push it

    one of the cases said that having a booth at a muni (or authority) conference was not kosher
    same for construction trade shows
    it's done all the time
    I've heard the PA board said it was ok if it was advertised and open to all interested parties

    if in doubt I avoid it, if it feels wrong it likely is
    if your work speaks for itself word of mouth will do it in a small market like mine
