He served on countless committees, most notably as current Chairman of Smart Water Application Technologies (SWAT), Past Chairman of the IA Education Foundation, Past Chairman of the IA Certification Board of Governors, and currently serving on the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) Landscape Irrigation Standards Committee.  Along the way, he found time to serve as President of both ASIC and IA.

Brian is the recipient of many past Awards and Honors as well.  He was named an ASIC Fellow in 2014—an honor recognizing exceptional career work that has advanced the art, science and professionalism of irrigation consulting and his countless volunteer hours given on behalf of the irrigation industry.  In 2015, he was awarded the prestigious IA Industry Achievement Award and was the 2009 EPA WaterSense Partner of the year.
