Fellows of the Society

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.

The number of living Fellows at any time shall not exceed ten percent (10%) of the total Society's living membership.

The 2021 Qualifications Subcommittee recommended, and the Board of Directors approved, to elevate nine members to the prestigious member grade of Fellow. Out of a total SFPE membership of over 4,700 there are only 331 members nominated to the grade of Fellow. 

Join us in celebrating the 2021 SFPE Fellows on October 18 at the 2021 SFPE Annual Conference & Expo in Baltimore, Maryland. Register by August 30 to receive the early-bird rate or for more details, visit sfpe.org/annual21.
