Dear Mr. Wright:
Congratulations! You have been selected by the Committee on Advancing the Profession to receive the 2015 Edmund Friedman Professional Recognition Award “For his significant contributions to the civil and professional engineering communities during his 35-year career, his work to enhance the registration and certification of engineers, and his lasting impact in assistance with military engineering veterans.” The selection committee particularly noted your contributions to the military, in government service and the private sector.
We hope you can personally accept this award, which consists of a plaque, during the Society’s Annual Convention in New York City, NY, October 13, 2015. Later in the summer, you can expect to hear from Jane Alspach, Senior Manager of Honors and Awards, with details about the presentation event.
Please direct your attention to the important enclosures. As you will see, we ask your assistance as we prepare publicity about your award. The attachments will guide you through the process of assembling requested documents and making your travel plans.
Please accept my personal congratulations on this important milestone in your career.
Thomas W. Smith III, ENV SP, CAE, F.ASCE
