Your Invitation to the Honors Assembly

Oct. 20, 2017

On Monday, Nov. 6, at 6:30 p.m., ASME will present its 2017 Honors Assembly held in conjunction with the Society’s International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition (IMECE) in Tampa, Fla. This impressive and dramatic audiovisual experience will be one IMECE event you won’t want to miss. 

I am pleased to announce the following recipients to be recognized for their accomplishments at this year’s Assembly: the Melvin R. Green Codes and Standards Medal to Paul D. Edwards; the Gustus L. Larson Memorial Award to Evelyn N. Wang; the Ralph Coats Roe Medal to Adrian Bejan; Honorary Membership to Ramesh K. Agarwal, John Cipolla, and Michael F. Modest; the ASME Medal to Zděnek P. Bažant and the Hoover Medal to John Staehlin.

The Honors Assembly is a free Congress event and everyone is invited to attend. 

A reception for all the Honors Assembly attendees will be held at 5:30 p.m. preceding the Honors Assembly. During this time, you will have the opportunity to personally meet and congratulate the award recipients, network with colleagues, meet old friends and make new acquaintances.

On behalf of the ASME Committee on Honors, I hope you will join us for this special evening.
