The Board of Governors yesterday voiced support for two initiatives that promise to enhance the Society’s online infrastructure.
The first is an ambitious plan to significantly improve the look and functionality of ASME.ORG, the Society’s principal Web infrastructure. ASME.ORG is the overarching site that houses several ASME subdomains, including MEMAGAZINE.ORG, and ASMENEWS.ORG. The other Web-based initiative surrounds a plan called Engineering for Change, focused on finding engineering solutions to humanitarian problems (more on this on a later posting).
Another main topic of discussion for the governors, at an all-day meeting Sunday, surrounded the organization’s Strategic Initiatives, which are energy, engineering workforce development, and global impact.
The Governors also initiated a long-term conversation focusing on how to shape the future of Society. Such a reflection on the organization’s growth, they agreed, is vital in order to continue to meet ASME’s mission and vision.
Details of the plans will be reported in upcoming issues of ASMENEWS.ORG.
