A Note From ASEM's 2023-24 President   |   November 2023

Dear ASEM Community:

I am honored to assume the role of your President, and I want to express my gratitude for the trust and confidence you've placed upon me to lead our Society. The 2023 International Annual Conference in Denver, Colorado, has left me with a profound sense of connection with so many of you, both in person and through our engaging virtual sessions.

My journey with ASEM began during my time as an MSEM student at Northeastern University in Boston, where I co-founded a student chapter alongside my peers from the Economic Decision Making class. As I graduated, my commitment to ASEM remained, and thanks to the guidance of Paul Kauffman, our former Executive Director, I was able to quickly get involved further with the society, particularly in social media management. My involvement in the Communications committee opened doors, ultimately leading to the opportunity to become the Director of Communications. During my tenure in this capacity, we achieved notable milestones, including a 15% growth in social media followers, an enhanced website design for Google analytics, improvements to the membership funnel and experience, and the consistent publication of Practice Periodical articles for practicing Engineering Managers.

Annmarie Uliano

I would like to take a moment to extend my sincere appreciation to Dr. Yesim Sireli, our immediate past President, for her outstanding contributions to the Society. I have long admired her unwavering dedication, from her early work as International Director to her recent endeavors in establishing the Industrial Advisory Board, both of which have been instrumental in forging valuable partnerships within our key markets. I am eager to put into action the recommendations from the 2023 Tactical plan.

As we embark on this new chapter together, I am excited about the journey that lies ahead as we collectively advance the field of engineering management. ASEM holds a bold vision of being the preeminent global organization for engineering management and representing the top thought leadership in the field. Our unwavering commitment to providing state-of-the-art products and services for engineering managers is aimed at advancing both the theory and practice of our discipline.

I eagerly look forward to the year ahead and the opportunity to collaborate with you. I am genuinely open to hearing your ideas and suggestions to further enhance our society for the greater good. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me at

Thank you for your dedication, and together, we will continue to shape the future of engineering management.

Annmarie Uliano

                                      Another Terrific IAC in Tampa!

                                      Thank you to all who contributed to ASEM’s 2022 hIAC last week.  Your presence, whether face-to-face or virtual, was inspiring.  While the numbers are not quite all in, by all appearances, the conference was a huge success. 

                                      Several of those present in Tampa were kind enough to share their appreciation for our return to a conference where all could share EM related practical experiences, emerging and continuing research, and the great joy of seeing colleagues in person.  Getting back to a three-dimensional view of personages was rewarding.  And, being able to see and hear, virtually, from others around the globe in two-dimensions was also meaningful.  The hybrid, format allowed ASEM to support those who’s ability to travel may have been restricted. ASEM plans to continue this format.

                                      The technical presentations were informative, challenging, and encouraging.  EM is alive and growing.  The student case competition; well, that was wonderful. Congratulations to the winning teams. If you missed the 2021 Sarchet Award winner’s presentation, be sure to check it out on ExOrdo.  Suzie Long gave a touching and moving presentation.  ASEM looks forward to a featuring the Sarchet Award winner presentation at each conference. 

                                      ASEM will be in Denver at The Curtis Hotel in 2023.  Mark your calendars, make your plans, and if you won’t be able to travel, tune up those web connections.  Denver is an amazing place to visit and ASEM is an amazing family of engineering management protagonists. The 2023 ASEM hIAC is going to be great!

                                      Opportunity to Contribute to ASEM Professional Certifications

                                      ASEM seeks knowledge volunteers as part of a team chartered to investigate validation or accreditation of ASEM’s growing portfolio of certifications. The use of a third-party standard, has long been discussed. Organizations such as ABET use international standards such as ISO 9000. The Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE) and the IACET (International Accreditors for Continuing Education and Training) are two examples of U.S. organizations that accredit personnel and continuing education related certifications or certificates. The major deliverable for the Accreditation Project is a actionable plan for obtaining recognized and effectual accreditation as our certification/badging products grow. If you have applicable accreditation knowledge or experience and would like to contribute to this please contact the ASEM Executive Director (
