Dashboard

The information on your Membership & Benefits page is linked directly to your current ASME membership. If there is inaccurate information reflected on your Membership & Benefits page, please send an email to asmecommunity@asme.org, providing us with your email address and the information that is incorrect.
Each user has the ability to limit the information that is viewable on their Profile page. By default most features are set to Public. A user has the ability to adjust their visible features to Public, ASME.org Participants, Your Network, or Private. To change your Privacy Settings, go to your Dashboard and on the left hand side click "Privacy Settings." Once you have updated your settings click Save Changes.

Groups

If you have already joined Groups, the best way to access them is by looking at the Groups tab on your Dashboard. This is personalized to you.
Go to community.asme.org/search/directorysearch.aspx and look for the Group there. Some Groups are open and can be joined by clicking on the Join Group button on the Group's landing page.
The Group you’re seeking may be a closed or inactive Group. Make sure that the Group Access Type is set to “All Groups” to see these as well. For Groups that are closed, please send an email to asmecommunity@asme.org with the name of the Group in which you would like to be enrolled and we will contact the Group’s administrator. Inactive Groups do not have an administrator — if you are interested in becoming the administrator for an inactive Group, please send an email to asmecommunity@asme.org.
All members that currently hold leadership roles within Committees, Divisions, and Sections should be auto-enrolled into their respective Committee, Division, and Section Groups. For these Participants, the first item on their Site Activity tab on their Dashboard is “[Participant Name] has joined the Group [Name of Group].” Links to their Groups will be found on the Groups tab of the Dashboard.
