Message from the President - Nicholas J Altiero
Nick Altiero

At the ASEE Winter Board meeting, held February 27 - March 1, the Executive Committee of the Board took part in a “Strategic Doing” session. Emerging from that session are some bold ideas to move ASEE into the coming decades, better serving existing and future members.

You'll see more details about this in future email communications after we've posted the details online. I strongly encourage all of you to offer feedback to me and the Board of Directors via a website that we will provide at that time.

I look forward to reading your responses to this plan and further exploring the ideas at the Annual Conference in Seattle.
