Distinguished Members

“A Distinguished Member shall be a person who shall have attained acknowledged eminence in some branch of engineering or in the arts and sciences related thereto.” (Bylaws 2.1.6) 

In 2007, the Society changed the title, Honorary Member, to more clearly convey the acknowledged eminence of ASCE’s most prestigious honorees. Beginning in 2008, the title of the Society’s elite member grade is known as Distinguished Member. Honorary Members elected before 2008 had the opportunity to accept this new title, and the list that follows will reflect their preference.
