About

Who We Are

ASME established the Industry Advisory Board (IAB) in 1987 to help ensure that ASME programs are relevant and effective for its members in industry and to strengthen the Society's ties to industrial members.

The IAB is sustained by the solicitation of ideas and recommendations by its members to benefit industry, ASME, and the profession.
