Groups, Sections, and Technical Divisions
Members can engage with various ASME official groups (Sections & Technical Divisions.) Official groups are led by ASME volunteers.
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.
Student Sections represent ASME at University/College campuses globally. The Sections enrich the engineering student experience and prepare students to enter the professional realm, by providing mentoring, volunteer and leadership opportunities.
At ASME, members can join Technical Divisions based upon their professional and technical interests. More than 50,000 members have elected to affiliate with at least one and up to five divisions. Division opportunities include access to a collaborative community of peers, leadership & volunteer opportunities, career development, numerous student activities, technical/research conferences, and the chance to contribute to the publication of technical journals.
