Rashod R. Johnson, P.E., Earns Professional Engineer's License
The Mason Contractor's Association of America announced today that Rashod R. Johnson, P.E., Director of Engineering, has earned a professional engineering license from the State of Illinois.
Professional Engineer licenses are regulated by the State of Illinois in order to safeguard the public by setting defined minimum standards of professional performance when professional services are needed. Professional licensing raises the standards of the profession by limiting practice to those meeting objective standards through rigorous examinations and experience.
Johnson, who has been with MCAA for over six years, serves on many codes and standards committees representing the interests of mason contractors throughout the country. Prior to working for MCAA, Johnson worked in engineering sales for a material distributor and as a project engineer for a major contractor in Chicago.
"Rashod has worked hard over the last six years to establish MCAA's credibility within America's masonry codes and standards. This already solid credibility was strengthened even further by Rashod's earning of his P.E. license," says Michael Adelizzi, MCAA's Executive Director.
Johnson's professional memberships include the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE), the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) and the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM), where he is on the Executive Committee for C12-Masonry Mortars, C15-Manufactured Masonry Units and E34-Occupational Health and Safety.
He holds a bachelor of science in civil engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a master of science in civil engineering from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
