Here is a link to some new content on the Oregon Section YouTube channel:

It is a video on tips to research your section history and founding.

I happen to pick the Hudson-Mohawk Section as an example in my research and found out a lot of interesting facts about their first Chair, H.G. Reist in 1919.

Happy New Year to all ASME volunteer leaders.

Here is a link to a YouTube video I made on different volunteer awards you should be considering for the special volunteers you know. One of the responsibilities of the Section leaders is to recognize the unique individuals you serve with. This video covers the Distinguished Service Award and ASME Fellow.

Here is a PDF on the basics of starting your own YouTube Channel.

It should be enough to get you started. There are lots of fun things to do to customize your channel page and many ways to make videos that I will get into later.

Let me know if you make your own channel so the other Section leaders can visit it and we can collaborate on ideas.

Hello. I’m Colleen Kennedy, a volunteer with the Oregon Section.

I’ll be helping support the communication functions of the Sections in the Northwest Region of ASME.

Some of the tasks I’ll help with are: communications on the Community Pages, use of the GMEC email tool and contact with your Section Members.

Other items that might interest you are creating your own YouTube Channel, holing online Zoom meetings and developing Section newsletters.

Is there anything I am missing? [This is a start, and we need to learn from you other ways you have been communicating too].

Feel free to contact me so we can start the conversation together.


Colleen K.

Oregon Section
