Mean on membership


I find the scrapping of free membership for newly retired Members who have paid 50 years of dues discouraging and depressing.

I have been a Member of the American Society of Civil Engineers for a mere 30 years and though I am still active professionally, this year I was informed that after completing thirty years of membership I am now a Life Member and will have no further dues to pay.

Membership of the ASCE is far less expensive than that of the ICE, yet I get no more from ICE as a Member residing outside London than I get from ASCE.
