Groups, Sections, and Technical Divisions

Members can engage with various ASME official groups (Sections & Technical Divisions.) Official groups are led by ASME volunteers.

Professional Sections

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. Find more information on your section using the Volunteer Leadership Directory.
