Call for Nominations - Honorary
The Board of Directors of
the CAE is inviting nominations of new Honorary
Fellows. The form and guidelines are available
in the Fellows’ section of our
website. This designation recognizes la crème de
la crème of those who have shaped the practice
of engineering. Our guidelines stipulate two
high level criteria: “an individual who has made
an outstanding contribution to the engineering
profession in Canada, another country or
globally” and “contributions well above what is
expected for a Fellow of the Academy”.
If you know an outstanding
individual whose lifetime contributions to the
practice of engineering are in the “well above”
range, please submit a nomination to the CAE
office no later than December 15, 2014.
