The American Society of Civil Engineers Membership Applications Review Committee (MARC) has reviewed and approved the election of Joshua B. Kardon to ASCE Fellow.

From the ASCE web site:  “There is no direct admission to the grade of Fellow.

It is a prestigious honor held by fewer than 5% of ASCE members.  Fellows are practitioners, educators, mentors, and most of all leaders.
