The James Kling Fellowship Award
The AIA-MBA Joint Committee unanimously voted to bestow the 2018 James Kling Fellowship Award to Mr. Jack Mascaro in recognition of the high standards that he has maintained for the industry, while fostering a community spirit amongst the design and construction professions.
The James Kling Fellowship Award was established by the AIA-MBA Joint Committee to recognize those individuals who best exemplify collaboration between the design and constructor professions. These individuals, through their action and example, provide both members of the AIA and the MBA standards of excellence to strive for in an effort to bridge the gap between the two sides.

This prestigious honor will be presented at The Construction Industry Evening of Excellence, MBA’s largest event, as part of the MBA Building Excellence Awards. The event is being held on Thursday, February 28, 2019, from 5–9 p.m., at the Heinz Field East Club. The awards ceremony will begin at 6 p.m. Registration information can be found below, under Events. We hope that you will join us for the celebration.
