                                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 (
