Awards, Fellows, & Honors
The SFPE Society Awards consist of eight different categories. The SFPE Board of Directors (BOD) selects recipients who are deserving of the Society's highest accolades. The BOD also selects the SFPE Award for Chapter Excellence (ACE). The ACE awards are broken down into three categories gold, silver, or bronze. All awards are given out annually during the SFPE Conference & Expo. SFPE Fellows represent a distinguished group of members who have attained significant stature and accomplishment in engineering. Fellows have been members of the Society for at least 10 years and have been nominated by their peers for outstanding contributions to the advancement of fire protection engineering and valuable service to SFPE. SFPE Honorary Members are a distinguished group of individuals who either have rendered exceptional service to the Society and have made substantial and outstanding contributions to fire protection engineering, or are generally acknowledged as eminent in fire protection engineering or a related activity. The grade of Honorary Member carries with it all of the privileges of the grade of Fellow in the Society.
