Do you know someone whose dedication to consulting engineering has been nothing short of extraordinary? It's time to shine a spotlight on their outstanding contributions to the profession and the industry. Nominate them for the prestigious Beaubien Award and give them the recognition they truly deserve!
What is the Beaubien Award?
Since 1985, the Beaubien Award has been the hallmark of excellence in the consulting engineering industry. Named in honor of Dr. James de Gaspé Beaubien, the founder of ACEC in 1925, this award recognizes individuals who have made significant and lasting contributions to the profession.
Individuals from existing or past member firms who have distinguished themselves as outstanding contributors to ACEC-Canada, either through their dedicated work within the association or by elevating the stature of consulting engineering through their remarkable accomplishments. Former Presidents or Chairs of the Association, who've been out of that role for at least five (5) years, and ex-members of the ACEC Board of Directors, retired from the Board for a minimum of three (3) years, can also be nominated.
If you know someone whose career is a testament to enduring achievement in the industry, now is the time to acknowledge their impact. This is your chance to shine a spotlight on those who've made a real difference.
