Membership in a professional organization is a great way to stay current on the latest topics, expand your knowledge base, and is a way to give back to younger members. Lawson-Fisher Associates has a policy of encouraging employee involvement in professional organizations due to these benefits.

One example of such an organization is the Association of Conservation Engineers (ACE). ACE is a professional organization of engineers and others in related disciplines that work with the natural environment and promote the application of sound engineering practices in the field of natural resource protection and recreation development.

One of the highlights of the annual conference are the Carl Anderson Awards for outstanding projects that exhibit the goals and objectives of ACE. Lawson-Fisher Associates has received this award along with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources for the Koontz Lake Dam project. Breagan Eicher is serving on the ACE Awards committee this year, which is an exciting opportunity to review innovative projects from throughout the country. If your firm or agency has recently completed a project, please consider applying for the Carl Anderson Award. It is a great way to get recognition for the hard work that goes into making a project a success.
