The AIME HQ 2010 Second Quarter report.
AIME's mission is to support the advancement of our member societies and represent the societies in the larger engineering and scientific communities.
AIME recognizes outstanding achievement in technology, research, production, development and administration through the conferring of several major achievement awards. We also fund several scholarships annually, the Marshall undergraduate being administered by AIME Staff.
Nominations and applications should be submnitted by June 15. Find details, guidelines, and nomination forms on the AIME Web site: http://www.aimehq.org/awards and http://www.aimehq.org/scholarships/scholarshipslist.cfm
The Emerging Leaders Alliance (ELA) develops great leaders to guide our professions in addressing the needs of people in the 21st century by providing online and in person leadership training and follow on communications and a community of practice.
The ELA planning team has selected dates and venues for 2010 capstones. U.S. training will take place November 5 & 6 in Denver, Colorado. The inaugural European session will be held November 30 and December 1 and 2 in Amsterdam.
Sessions include training on:
The AIME Member Societies each have had technical representatives collaborating with the four other engineering founder societies on important projects relative to information dissemination and carbon management technologies. You can reference their work at http://www.aiche.org/FSCarbonMgmt/.
A Gaps and Barriers to Carbon Management Technologies Webinar was held in March. Scorecards for analyzing attributes of various electric power and transportation technologies are also available for your use.
As a follow-on to our sustainability workshop last summer (see www.aimehq.org/news.cfm for Proceedings), AIME sent representatives to the United Nation's Commission for Sustainable Development - 18 in New York this May. There were excellent opportunities for us to share our technical knowledge and view points. We plan to remain involved as this work continues into next year. In addition, we have partnered with the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) to develop a new tool for information on the principles and practices of sustainable development: http://efs.aiche.org/.
The site was designed to help you by encouraging the application of sustainable development principles and providing information on how you can participate in sustainable development programs and activities at the local, regional, and national levels.
