How We Work

Engage with Official ASME Groups
Members can engage with various ASME official groups (Sections, Technical Divisions and Affinity Groups.) Official groups are lead by ASME volunteers.


Affinity Group - Provides virtual engagement

Affinity Groups are virtual groups of individuals who have mutual interests in specified technical or professional topics. ASME Members can identify an Affinity Group they’d like to be a part of. For example, the Women in Engineering Affinity Group.

Section – Provides local, geographic engagement

Sections are ASME local chapters. Each ASME member is assigned to a local section (if available), based on their geographic location. For example, the Boston Section.

Technical Division – Provides engagement via technical interest

Technical Divisions are groups formed around specified technical interests. Many Technical Divisions contribute to ASME Conferences, Journals and other technical content. ASME Members can identify up to five Technical Divisions they would like to be affiliated with. For example, the Bioengineering Division.
