Remarks from ASEE President and President-Elect

Wilhelm introduced President J.P. Mohsen.  In his remarks he made the following points.

            Louisville is a great place for the meeting.

            He discussed the search for the Executive Director to replace Frank Huband who has announced he will retire in November.  He complimented Huband in his efforts for the 20 years he has been in this position.  Huband inherited an ASEE organization that had numerous problems in operation and finances and was able to put the organization on a solid organizational and financial base. 

            He announced that an oversight committee had selected Lyle Feisel as the Interim Director. Lyle has been President of ASEE and had numerous other positions. 

            A search committee led by Don Giddens, President Elect-Elect, will begin to work immediately.  It will be a national search to find the best possible person.  They will seek input from the entire membership in this search.  He stated that there is a wealth of wisdom in the Academy of Fellows and he is seeking help from that group at the appropriate time.

Last year the global activities of ASEE expanded. In October there will be a World Educational Forum held in Singapore and he encourage the members to attend.  Renatta Engel led an international activities group.  The Board approved an international strategic plan at the Sunday meeting.

Wilhelm introduced President-Elect Renata Engel.

She echoed Mohsen’s comments on the search for a new Executive Director.  She predicted an exciting year ahead.   She encouraged attendance at the meeting in Vancouver.
