- Edward J. Cleary Award for outstanding management of environmental protection enterprises
- Gordon Maskew Fair Award for substantial contributions to the environmental engineering and science profession
- Stanley E. Kappe Award for outstanding service to the Academy and advancement of public awareness
- Honorary Member for professional eminence and achievements

Frederick George Pohland Medal - The recipient of the 2015 Frederick George Pohland Medal is Dr. Morton Barlaz, Ph.D., P.E., BCEE. The Award will be presented at the AEESP Research and Education Conference at Yale University on Tuesday, June 16. Congratulations Dr. Barlaz!
Forty-five BCEE/BCEEMs, chosen at random, have received notices for the 2015 audit. BCES members are not yet eligible for the audit. Each person audited is being asked to supply the Recertification Committee with documentation substantiating at least 40 Professional Development Hours. If you work full-time you automatically receive 24 PDHs and then you only have to come up with 16 more. This can be done by attending seminars, classes, symposiums, exhibits, performing presentations, etc. The PDHs are acquired by continuing professional development activities during calendar years January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2014 to ensure compliance with the continuing professional development requirements for Active and Life Active specialty certification. Those who were audited within the past 10 years are exempt from the current cycle.
If you have not renewed your certification by March 31st it is considered expired! Please contact Joyce Dowen at Academy Headquarters at 410-266-3311 or JDowen@aaees.org. Did you know you can always renew online anytime at The AAEES Center at: https://netforum.avectra.com/eWeb/StartPage.aspx?Site=AAEES.
