Professional Section Recognition Program

ASME’s professional sections are one of the major benefits of Society membership. The local sections strive to make a difference in the lives of mechanical engineers throughout the world and provide opportunities for networking, professional development, and community engagement to name a few. The Professional Section Recognition Program was created to highlight these outstanding sections and the volunteers that lead the way and work to enhance the member experience. We want to recognize the contributions of your section and the volunteer leaders in the next cohort of distinguished professional sections.
