2019 Election: Bob Kudder

Running For: Council


Campaign Statement

I knew in grammar school that I wanted to be an engineer, and have been gratified to practice my entire adult life.  In fact, I am still practicing now at 73, although only part time and no longer as an equity Principal.  What I enjoy most at this stage of my career is mentoring young engineers and architects, and I consider this a payback to the profession and to all the wonderful engineers who mentored me.  It is a pleasure, an honor and an obligation.  My studies focused on structural engineering, including a Ph.D from Northwestern University, but my interests eventually moved toward building science.  I never thought I would become one of the industry leaders in diagnosing building leakage and condensation problems.  I was even elected a Fellow of ASTM for my work in building forensics and testing.
