ASME sets networking event at historical museum

DETROIT—The American Society of Mechanical Engineers’ FutureME organization for early-career engineers, along with the ASME Metro Detroit Section and the ASME Old Guard, have partnered on a networking event to be held Saturday, June 15 at the Detroit Historical Museum, 5401 Woodward Ave. in Detroit.

The event, which will run from 1 to 4 p.m., is intended to let engineers with less than 10 years of experience build their professional networks while learning about current engineering research and importance of participation in professional societies. It will also allow attendees to connect with engineering professionals and gain insights, tips and advice for accelerating their careers.

The program includes a welcome from ASME Metro Detroit Section leadership, an ASME FutureME presentation, speed networking and games, a raffle, and a guided tour of the museum.

There will also be a keynote presentation by Janice K. Means, PE, LEED AP, FESD, professor emeritus at Lawrence Technological University’s College of Architecture and Design at Lawrence Technological University. She has been an active member of ASHRAE since 1985, and her presentation is titled “Designing to Code is Designing to the Minimum Requirements – Not Something to Brag About!” She’ll also discuss the benefits to young engineers of becoming active in professional societies.

The event is open to both members and nonmembers. Food and beverages will be provided. The cost is $10, to be paid on site at registration. RSVP to with the full name of all attendees and an e-mail address by Tuesday, June 11.
