Washington D.C., May 17, 2021 —

The National Academy of Engineering has elected a treasurer and four members to its governing Council. All terms begin July 1, 2021.

Newly elected to serve a four-year term as NAE's treasurer is Roger L. McCarthy, consultant with McCarthy Engineering. McCarthy, who was elected to the NAE in 2004, succeeds Martin B. Sherwin who has served two consecutive terms as treasurer, the maximum tenure allowed by the Academy’s bylaws.

Reelected as councillors are Nadine Aubry, provost, senior vice president and professor of mechanical engineering at Tufts University; Wesley L. Harris, Charles Stark Draper Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Edward D. Lazowska, professor and Bill & Melinda Gates Chair Emeritus at the University of Washington; and Howard B. Rosen, managing director of BonVelo Ventures, and lecturer at Stanford University. All terms are three years.

The National Academy of Engineering was established in 1964 under the charter of the National Academy of Sciences. The National Academy of Engineering, National Academy of Sciences, and National Academy of Medicine work together as the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. The NAE is autonomous in its administration and in the selection of its members, sharing with NAS and NAM the responsibility for advising the federal government.

The mission of NAE is to advance the well-being of the nation by promoting a vibrant engineering profession and by marshalling the expertise and insights of eminent engineers to provide independent advice to the federal government on matters involving engineering and technology.
