JNEWS: Fife, William A. (MC1967) 2014 Metropolitan Section Civil Engineer of the Year Award



Metropolitan Section Civil Engineer of the Year Award 

The Section’s highest award recognizes a civil engineer who has rendered exceptional service to the civil engineering profession, to the Met Section and to the Society. The first award was presented to Emil H. Praeger on May 20, 1953 in the Engineering Societies Building for his design of Pier 57, the only pier in New York City built on floating concrete caissons. A former chief of the Navy Bureau of Design, Praegar also designed a floating concrete breakwater for the invasion of Normandy during World War II.

2014 Recipient:
William A. Fife, P.E.
The Fife Group

Bill Fife has over 45 years of engineering experience in aviation planning, design and construction. In the ASCE Met Section, he served on the Board, has been Chair of the Air Transport Group for over 20 years, and founded and chaired the group’s annual conference for the past 17 years. Along with his committee members, he has raised over $200,000 for the Met Section Scholarship Fund. He has also been active in senior level ASCE positions at the national level and in T&D I for over 20 years. Most recently, he served as T&D I’s Aviation Council Chair from 2006 to 2010.

His energetic commitment and contributions to the engineering profession and the aviation industry have been recognized both domestically and internationally. He was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation from the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Aviation Administration Eastern Region (FAA) at the 2003 Airport Conference. He is also a recipient of the Kavanagh Service Award from the ASCE Met Section, as well as community service awards from Professional Women in Construction, the Lighthouse for the Blind, and C. W. Post College.

Bill began his career in June 1967 as an engineering management trainee at the Port Authority of NY&NJ. He led and participated in major planning, design and construction projects while at the PANY&NJ and at AECOM. They include JFK 2000, LGA Redevelopment, Air Train JFK Planning, the N-Train to LGA Planning Study, the Philadelphia International Airport Master Planning Study, and many others. His development and implementation of the peer review process for airport and transit projects has been recognized worldwide. This process saves public agencies millions of dollars each year using “lessons learned” from other projects. He was recognized by Engineering News Record (ENR) as a 2000 Newsmaker for his efforts in developing and successfully implementing the peer review group process. He has also served as the liaison between owners and contractors, solving construction problems and enabling innovation in construction for projects such as the JetBlue Terminal at JFK.

He was a Captain in the US Air Force and served his country as a Bio-Environmental Engineer from 1970 to 1972. When not doing engineering, Bill volunteers with many organizations including the ASCE Met Section, Professional Women in Construction, the Sperry Board of Award, Transportation Research Forum, the CUNY Aviation Institute, and Sacred Heart Church. He also enjoys spending time playing bridge, exercising, yoga and traveling with his wife Pat, the former COO of VNA of Long Island. He loves to spend time with his children, Bill, a family practice doctor, Patrick, an attorney, and Lara, a nurse practitioner along with fine grandchildren.

JFOUND: Fox, Kevin [MC1967] has love reported; very neat



Love in Paris – IES Abroad Alumni Kevin & Pat
Date: Friday, February 14, 2014

*** begin quote ***

For the final alumni couple in our weeklong “Love In…” series, we’ve featured Kevin and Pat Fox, who met while studying with IES Abroad in Paris in 1965-66. Often referred to as the “City of Love,” we thought it only fitting to save this one for Valentine’s Day.

Kevin was a History major at Manhattan College and Pat studied English and French at the University of Pittsburgh. They chose Paris mainly because, well, it’s Paris! Their story is special in that it’s told from both perspectives.

JFOUND: Conrad, Francis G. [MC1967] joins Mediation.com network



Mediation.com Adds Former Bankruptcy Judge Francis G. Conrad To Its Expanding Network of Attorney-Mediators
Sought-after jurist, accountant and financial mediator Francis G. Conrad brings business and judicial experience to Mediation.com.


Francis G. Conrad | New York Mediator | Banruptcy and Accounting Expert
Whether it’s mediation or arbitration, my philosophy has always been: the difficult matter we resolve right away; the impossible matter takes a little longer. – Francis G. Conrad

Long Beach, NY (PRWEB) December 12, 2013

The Honorable Francis G. Conrad has many professional designations that demonstrate his commitment to the law and the breadth of experience he obtained over the course of his career. A longtime supporter of alternative dispute resolution methods like mediation and arbitration, Judge Conrad is the newest member of the online network Mediation.com.

“My experience and knowledge in business relationships, bankruptcy and accounting comes in handy for my alternative dispute resolution practice,” Judge Conrad said. “Whether it’s mediation or arbitration, my philosophy has always been: the difficult matter we resolve right away; the impossible matter takes a little longer.”

Since leaving the bench, Judge Conrad has put his dispute resolution skills to work with over 900 mediations and 34 arbitrations. He has represented cases both big and small in this endeavor, with case values ranging from $100,000 to $22 million. His experience as an Emergency Medical Technician and hospital bankruptcy issues has led him to mediate in multiple accident injury and medical malpractice cases. Unsurprisingly, he was named as one of the top five mediators in New York State in both the “Best Financial Markets Mediator” and “Best International Mediator” categories of the 2012 New York Law Journal Reader Rankings Survey.

Having served as a Bankruptcy judge in multiple Federal Districts and on the Second Circuit Bankruptcy Appellate Panel, in addition to having worked as an attorney, allows Judge Conrad to bring superior skills of dispute resolution to the table for clients. He worked with numerous cases involving healthcare, investment banking, news and entertainment media, manufacturing, brokerage, shipping, retail, banking, leasing, accountant’s and legal malpractice.

As a business and law professor for more than 47 years both domestically and abroad, he is considered an expert in taxation, business strategies, accounting, and European Union law. He received his B.A. from Manhattan College, his M.B.A. from the John G. Hagan Graduate School of Business and his J.D. from the Fordham Law School. He is also a Certified Public Accountant, as well as a noted public speaker and author.

JEMAIL: Flynn, Bro. Gregory (MC1967) reminds about Addis Hope


Hello John,

It’s been some time since I last contacted you about continuing your support for our Addis Hope program.

Some have mentioned to me that a reminder is often needed since in today’s hectic world it’s easy, even with the best of intentions, for the request to be put aside for the moment and then forgotten. While I really value your support, I recognize that you may not be in a position to assist. If that is the case, I will continue to ask your prayers for our efforts to provide the first steps out of extreme poverty through education for the children of these truly deserving and marginalized families.

While I desire to return to Ethiopia as soon as possible, I realize that my efforts to keep the program operational are currently best served by my continuing to fund raise stateside. To that end, I’ve been able to arrange that donations to the program be made tax exempt if sent through the Christian Brothers Provincialate Development Office, P.O. Box 238 Lincroft, NJ 07738, mentioning Addis Hope.

In the last eleven years I’ve asked for donations of $150 to sponsor a child for a year. The sad reality is that at least double that is needed today because of the increase in the cost of living. If that previous arrangement continues to suit you, we will be delighted for your help.

I also realize that it may be tedious for some to write and mail a check, so if you are in a position to send $25 or $50 on a monthly basis by having your bank mail a check to the above address, it would assure the program of a steady income and do away with our hand-to-mouth uncertainty. This arrangement is also tax exempt.

God bless. Perhaps this could be put into Jasper Jottings, John.
