Bennett Brooks Elected Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America
Bennett M. Brooks, P.E. was elected in December 2004 as a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America (FASA). The citation read "For contributions to noise control engineering, standards and noise policy."
The election was announced, and a presentation was made, at the plenary session of the 149th meeting of the Acoustical Society, on 18 May 2005 in Vancouver, British Columbia. The election was also announced in the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America (JASA) in the July 2005 issue.
The Acoustical Society of America was founded in 1929 to increase and diffuse the knowledge of acoustics and its practical application.
Since its organization in 1929, the Society has grown steadily in membership and stature. At this time nearly 7000 men and women who work in acoustics throughout the U.S. and abroad belong to this prestigious Society. A variety of fields related to sound are represented, ranging from physics and engineering, to biology, psychology, architecture and music. This diversity, along with the opportunities provided for the exchange of knowledge and points of view, has become one of the Society's unique and strongest assets. From the beginning, the Acoustical Society has sought to serve the widespread interests of its members and the acoustics community in all branches of acoustics, both theoretical and applied.
The Society is primarily a voluntary organization and attracts the interest, commitment, and service of a large number of professionals. Their contributions in the formation, guidance, administration, and development of the ASA are largely responsible for its world-wide preeminence in the field of acoustics.
