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.
ASME Members – and non-members – are invited to join ASME Government Relations for a webinar scheduled for Wednesday, December 7, 2016 from 12:00pm-1:00pm (EST) highlighting a current and former Fellow who will be providing their personal perspectives on their accomplishments and challenges while serving as an ASME Fellow in the Executive and Legislative Branch.
Lester Su, Ph.D., Chair of the ASME Committee on Government Relations, will be moderating the session and will be joined by two of our Fellows who will be describing what they have learned about public policy making as it relates to the manufacturing and energy, as well as answering your questions about this invaluable opportunity
