ASME GOVERNMENT RELATIONS WEBINAR HIGHLIGHTS ASME FEDERAL GOVERNMENT FELLOWSHIPS: “ENGINEERS AND PUBLIC POLICY: A DYNAMIC COMBINATION”
ASME has the unique distinction of being the very first engineering/scientific society to have the vision to establish a Congressional fellowship program. For the past 43 years, ASME has provided a valuable service to the nation by sponsoring over 100 Federal Fellows who served in the Executive and Legislative Branch. ASME Federal Government Fellowships have enabled selected ASME members to devote a year working in government providing engineering and technical advice to policy makers in Congress, federal agencies, and the White House. This premier program serves as a testament to ASME’s long-standing commitment to national security, national issues and the continuing development of the engineering profession.
The webinar highlights a current and former Fellow who provided their personal perspectives on their accomplishments and challenges while serving as an ASME Fellow in the Executive and Legislative Branch.
