Secretary's Column - How to Become a Good Fellow

By Kenneth H. Rosenfield, P.E.

Members of ASCE have several membership levels to consider during their career. Student Membership is free and initiates the new civil engineering student to the benefits of joining a peer and professional organization.  It begins a life long process of improving one’s professionalism and provides many networking opportunities for the benefit of all members.  Upon completion of college, a student member transitions to an Associate Member and pays an escalating membership fee until the full Associate Member fees are reached. At that time, the Associate Member can take advantage of the full opportunities offered through the national organization. An Associate Member can advance to a full Member by having graduated from an ABET accredited college and achieving licensure or by documenting more than five years of responsible charge of engineering experience, providing a resume and by providing three references to the national Membership Application Review Committee.  A member then has an opportunity to rise through the ranks of membership by seeking the grade of Fellow.  Ultimately, becoming a Life Member is recognition of one’s ascension to the highest member grade in ASCE signifying your combination of professional years of experience and age has been recognized.

We hope that you will understand that you are not taking full advantage of the value inherent in ASCE until you become a Section member.
