ken hoffine

Outgoing Board member

The Board would like to thank Ken Hoffine, P.E., PLS, C.W.R.E, for his service as an Oregon State Board of Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying (OSBEELS) Board and Committee member. After fulling his eight years of service as a Board member in May of 2016, Ken agreed to remain a Board member till his replacement was found this past April.

During his time with the Board, Hoffine served as the chair of the Rules and Regulation Committee and as a member of the Finance Committee, Standards of Land Surveying Practice Committee, Customer Service and Communications Standards Task Force, and the Oregon Specific Examination Task Force. Previously, he served as President for the Professional Land Surveyor Organization (PLSO) Umpqua chapter and was a member of the Oregon State University Forest Engineering Curriculum committee.

Hoffine first obtained his professional engineer registration from the Board in 1984. Shortly following, he was issued registration as a professional land surveyor in 1987 and gained certification as a water right examiner in 1989. His wide range of experience in the engineering, land surveying and water rights professions helped him be a tremendous asset to the Board and provide many contributions during his time on various committees.

Originally from Medford, OR, Hoffine graduated from Oregon State University in 1979 with his Bachelor’s degree in Forest Engineering. Professionally, he has worked at Lone Rock Timber Co. since 1983 where he serves as an engineer and surveyor. He has previously worked at Coos Head Timber Co. in Coos Bay as a forest engineer.

“Ken has been a major asset to OSBEELS,” Jason Kent, OSBEELS Board President said.  “He has contributed to the Board on many subjects; we will miss him and wish him the best going forward.”

Outside of his profession, Hoffine has been involved with Boy Scouts of America serving as a troop and pack leader.

The Board and OSBEELS staff would like to thank Ken for his commitment and wish him the best in his future endeavors.​
