The deadline for early registration has passed, but there's still time to register for the ASEM International Annual Conference (IAC). The theme is "Driving Change: An Engineering Imperative. I hope to see you there, enjoying all that the city of Indianapolis can provide while spending time with fellow engineering management professionals.
Why should you go? There are a number of good reasons. It's a terrific way to network with other engineering management professionals. You can also learn more about the topics that compel engineering managers though their papers and presentations, as well at the keynote speakers.
The IAC is a great place to earn continuing education credits for the ASEM and other similar organizations that offer certification. You can also meet the board members and directors that are leading the ASEM into 2016 (and even step up for more involvement yourself, too). More information about the conference is here
at the ASEM website.
Personally, I'm looking forward to seeing the people that I've met at past conferences AND making new friends. The people that attend, to me, are the highlight of the conference. You can read some of the blogs from last year and see what I mean. It's a great way to learn and share in the the enthusiasm that is engineering management.
