In recent years, Mr. Tonander has served as a member of the NCEES Law Enforcement Committee, an internal committee that promotes greater uniformity and cooperation among member boards in the enforcement of licensure laws. He has also published two articles in the NCEES publication, Licensure Exchange. In his time with NCEES, Karl has taken the time to illustrate the importance of ethics in the engineering community through these works and his service.
