Goodmonson Named to ACEC College of Fellows

Architectural Engineers, Inc. (AEI), a WBE/DBE mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection (MEP/FP), and lighting design services firm based in Boston, announced today that Joel P. Goodmonson, Jr., P.E., LEED AP, founding principal and executive vice president, has been elevated to the College of Fellows through the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC).

Per ACEC, the College of Fellows is a distinguished class of engineers who have been selected by their peers as deserving recognition for exemplary contributions to the profession. Election to the College of Fellows is administered by the Committee of Fellows, which also coordinates all Fellow activities and programs.

“Joel is an outstanding leader and earnest industry advocate. As a member of the Massachusetts Board of Professional Engineers and Professional Land Surveyors for the last 10 years, Joel has represented the interests of the industry with steadfastness and drive,” said Lisa Brothers, PE, LEED AP, FACEC, Chairman and CEO of Nitsch Engineering, and national director of ACEC. “His commitment and tireless efforts are highly admired in our industry and I was honored to endorse Joel for induction into the ACEC College of Fellows.”

The bylaws of ACEC, which establish the principle of membership as a fellow of ACEC, recognize members who have, by their special service, elevated the standards of our engineering profession. Goodmonson was recognized for his wide and varied leadership within ACEC, as well as an enduring commitment to engineering practices within his community.

“Not only is ACEC a terrific organization, it is the only one that protects the business interests of engineering firms. As founders of Architectural Engineers, Robin Greenleaf and I, and our firm at large, have been committed to ACEC for more than 25 years,” said Goodmonson. “I have had the pleasure of serving the organization in local and national capacities, and feel privileged for the nomination and elevation to ACEC’s College of Fellows.”

At AEI, Goodmonson holds the position of executive vice president and leads the firms’ operations and client retention efforts. An active member of ACEC as a whole, he is a past president of the Massachusetts member organization, is currently a vice-chair of the national executive committee, and has held various positions on multiple committees throughout his career, both locally and nationally. Concurrent with his ACEC leadership, Joel is also chair of the Massachusetts Board of Registration of Professional Engineers and Professional Land Surveyors, and sits on the complaint investigation committee. As the only engineer on the 250 CMR rewrite committee, his work directly contributed to changing the rules and regulations for engineers and land surveyors in Massachusetts, a process that
