ASME in 2020

In his keynote address at the President’s Luncheon yesterday, ASME President Robert T. Simmons said the Society is poised for growth.

 “Because of the work of our Board of Governors, numerous volunteer leaders around the world, and a very dedicated staff, we (ASME) are poised for future greatness,” Simmons said. “Women and early career engineers will play an important part in this growth.”

Simmons also predicted that half of ASME’s membership will reside outside the United States in 10 years, and said ASME would double the number of its student members. He also said ASME will increase activities in every energy sector, including renewables and other emerging technologies. 

At the luncheon, nine Society awards were presented, including the Frank Kreith Energy Award, the Thomas A. Edison Patent Award, and the Performance Test Codes Medal.  The luncheon included a presentation by Karen Malesky, president of the ASME Auxiliary, who spoke of the activities and accomplishments of the Auxiliary over the past year.
