The following ASME standards development committees are actively soliciting volunteers:

U.S. TAG to ISO/TC 192 Gas Turbines
The United States Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Technical Committee (TC) 192 is looking for experienced professionals with gas turbine machinery and industry knowledge to participate on the committee. ISO TC 192 has the role to prepare standards to support this industry and promote global innovation, market acceptance, and safety across the lifecycle to meet stakeholder needs. ISO TC 192 actively maintains around 20 standards relating to procurement, performance, and safety.  The committee is focused on improving existing safety standards to be more internationally relevant and accepted, address new and emerging technology that impacts gas turbines, and improve standardization and recognition of fundamental machinery principles and standards. As a member of the TAG, you will be providing your technical expertise to ISO TC 192 working groups and in the development of the U.S. position on the ISO standards balloted by ISO TC 192.The committee usually meets via conference calls.

RAP Subcommittee on Power Plant O&M Activities
The Reliability, Availability and Performance (RAP) Subcommittee on Power Plant O&M Activities is looking for engineers who are interested in the development of a new standard on Power Plant Cycle Alignment. It is intended that this document will contain outlines, descriptions, and explanation of the methods that can be used to conduct, maintain, and/or restore power steam cycle alignment, also known as cycle isolation, to ultimately improve the thermal performance or efficiency of the power plant.
The Subcommittee provides standards for improving and maintaining power plant performance, describing methods to troubleshoot, determine, and optimize performance. This new Standard is intended to be another in the series of already published Standards - POM 101-2013 Standard Performance-Related Outage Inspections and POM 102-2014 Standard Operating Walkdowns of Power Plants.
