ASEM’s tagline is Serving Engineering Managers Worldwide. I have been a member of ASEM for almost 20 years and it has been exciting to watch our Society’s global research expand tremendously over the past two decades. Just a quick glance at the membership of ASEM’s International Committee is clear evidence of this as our committee includes members from Belgium, Brazil, China, Denmark, Great Britain, South Africa, Spain, and the United States. This committee under the leadership of International Director Simon Philbin has increased ASEM’s service to our global members through formation of new international ASEM sections, support of more expansive, online professional certification, focused international activities at our annual conference, and international engineering management conference planning efforts. Just last year our international student membership increased 210%! Our Society has made great strides in creating an inclusive global professional network for all of our members, and I look forward to seeing where our reach expands in the coming years.
Please consider nominating your peers and colleagues for a 2017 ASEM award. Each year ASEM recognizes our members, chapters, sections, and community leaders who have made significant contributions to the engineering management practice and to ASEM itself. Nominations are due June 30, 2017, and are summarized below and detailed on our website.
