Carson Appointed to ASCE’s AGP Board

GBA’s Executive Director, Joel Carson has  been appointed to the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Academy of Geo-Professionals’ Board of Trustees.  He will serve a three-year term as the Public Member of the Board representing the interests of the general public whom the members of AGP serve.  He shared, “This is an incredible opportunity to both represent GBA and serve the geoprofessional community as we all look for ways to
elevate our profession. I am honored to serve on the Board of Trustees.”

The Academy of Geo-Professionals, founded in 2008, is an elite group comprised of over 300 Diplomates who have gone through many years of training and experience to become eligible for Board Certification. The Academy was formed by practicing geo-professional members of the American Society of Civil Engineers’ Geo-Institute as a way to recognize engineers who have a special knowledge and experience in the field of geotechnical engineering.

Mr. Carson replaces Theresa Engler, Executive Director of the Deep Foundations Institute after she served two terms on the AGP Board.
