A Note From ASEM's 2023-24 President   |   June 2024


Dear ASEM Members and Followers,

I hope this letter finds you well and thriving in your professional endeavors. As we have reached the halfway point of my term as President of the American Society for Engineering Management, I'd like to invite you to attend a Membership Gathering at the end of the month. Register so we can send you the Zoom link: asem.org/webinars

Per usual, I'd like to acknowledge some appointments, and thank these dedicated members for taking on a volunteer role:

      • Student Membership Director: David Paulus, PhD
      • IAB Industry Leadership Panel: Col Jimmy Harrington (Read Bio)


Annmarie Uliano

I am excited to share with you the significant progress and achievements. The Board of Directors and World Headquarters have been working on several key initiatives aimed at enhancing the value we provide to our members and strengthening our society's impact. Here are some of the highlights:

Professional Development Programs: We have expanded our range of professional development programs, offering more webinars, workshops, and certification courses tailored to the evolving needs of engineering managers. These events have facilitated knowledge sharing, collaboration, and the building of a stronger professional community. A project is well underway to produce an Engineering Project Management Body of Knowledge, and we look forward to the exciting content. Additionally, we are reviewing and re-invigorating the Certified Knowledge Provider program to vet qualified trainers for ASEM Certifications.

Research and Publications: Members and leadership of the society have supported and published numerous research papers and articles that address current challenges and trends in engineering management. The Engineering Management Journal continues to be a reputable source of knowledge and a platform for thought leadership in the field. The ASEM Blog continues to be a source of informal learnings from practicing engineering managers. We also have a few opportunities to participate in upcoming work by our membership (see links in eNews below).

Strategic Partnerships: We have been forging strategic partnerships with academic institutions, industry organizations, and other professional societies to broaden our reach and impact. These collaborations are opening up new opportunities for our members, including joint research projects, conference participation, and access to a wider range of resources. Our recent partnership with industry leaders in the Industry Advisory Board has enabled us to provide cutting-edge content and practical insights that you can apply directly in your careers. We are also thankful to the British University in Dubai, an ASEM-Certified program for their recognition of the ASEM at an upcoming Alumni event.

I want to express my gratitude to the Board of Directors, Fellows, Committee Members, and all of our volunteers, for your continued support and active participation in our society. It is through your dedication and involvement that we can advance our mission to promote engineering management as a discipline and support our members in their professional growth. Together, we are making a meaningful impact on the field of engineering management and advancing our collective goals.

Please feel free to reach out with any suggestions, feedback, or questions. Your input is invaluable as we strive to serve you better. 

Sincerely,

Annmarie Uliano

Participate in a Professional Membership Call for Chapters

ASEM International Director, Alex Gorod, along with his co-authors, have requested that we reach out to members to assist in their Call for Chapters for the upcoming Book, "Crisis Management and Complexity: Case Studies of Applied Systems Thinking".

The authors are invited to send in letters of intent to submit original case studies on application of systems thinking in crisis management and include brief abstracts of up to 250 words by July 1, 2024. The case studies cannot be previously published or currently under review by a conference and/or journal.

Submitted abstracts will go through a review process and if accepted, authors will be notified via email of the chapter submission steps and template by July 15, 2024. Completed chapters will be expected by September 30, 2024. 

    You can learn more by reviewing this document. For further information and submissions, please contact Nil Ergin at nhe2@psu.edu.

    Participate in Student Member's Research

    ASEM Student Member Nila Jennings has requested that we reach out to members to assist in her research.

    This study seeks to better understand what factors influence engineering managers’ development of an integrated engineer/leader identity as well as their motivation to lead. The quantitative study will focus on the following research questions:

    1. What is the relationship between engineering managers’ values, interests, beliefs, and attitudes and their development of an integrated (engineer/leader) identity.
    2. How does an engineer's professional identity relate to the development of an integrated (engineer/leader) identity.
    3. How do preferences between a professional and leader identity impact an engineering manager’s motivation to lead?

    You can learn more by reviewing this document or viewing the Qualtrics participation link. Contributors may receive information regarding the results by sending a request to nilaj@bgsu.edu.

                                      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 (ExecutiveDirector@asem.org).
