It was cool. Very cool. At the Alexander that is. Site of the 2015 ASEM IAC. The ASEM Board tried to meet there earlier but the country’s snow bound status made it difficult for several members to attend. Still it was cool. Not just the temperature. This is a concierge level hotel, with great spaces, great meeting rooms and a great location. Minutes from the heart of Indianapolis. Steps from great restaurants. Within eyesight of Lucas Oil Stadium, Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Victory Field, and a great museum (okay, I did pick up an Ansel Adams print there). It was cool. You should plan on joining us for the 2015 IAC, Driving Change: An Engineering Management Imperative. There is something else special about Indy...maybe I’ll think of it later.
ASEM is pleased to have started an initial collaboration with the Chinese Academy of Engineer’s Engineering Management Division. This division is comprised of over 200 renowned Chinese engineers who are the leading thinkers in Chinese engineering management. They have over 200,000 EM students at the college level. Their flagship magazine, Frontiers of Engineering Management is a relative new publication that is published quarterly. The FEM has opportunities for authors to publish internationally. The FEM is also seeking reviewers and associate editors. This is a great added value for ASEM members to engage with EM specialists from across the globe. Several ASEM members have been invited to China for the Engineering Management International Summit Forum in Guangzhou China in May of this year. Part of this visit will include détente on furthering the relationships that are forming between ASEM and the CAE’s EMD.
Here’s something for you. Be on the lookout for a special opportunity to get your own ASEM EMBoK.
If you are interested in participating in any of the opportunities above, from China to Indy, please let me hear from you. I think that would be cool.
Oh, that’s it. Indy has a quilt shop. Dearly Beloved likes that. She’ll be there in October.
