The ASME President’s Medal was established to recognise an outstanding contribution to ASME over many years and/or to someone not previously recognised for their contribution. The award may coincide with the end of a particular period of service to ASME.
Each year, the ASME President will select a highly experienced scholar, leader, manager and/or policy maker who has made outstanding contribution to ASME over many years. The recipient is likely to be ASME member and will usually be able to demonstrate a long association with ASME. There are no age, nationality, professional, occupational or other barriers to being considered for the award.
The successful nominee will receive the ASME President’s medal and lifetime honorary ASME membership.
The ASME President selects the recipient of this award. The President’s decision will be informed by the following criteria:
- Significance of contribution to ASME.
- Duration of service to ASME.
- Alignment to ASME values (Collaboration, Future-focus, Excellence, Scholarliness, Enabling).
The decision as to the recipient of the award will be communicated to the Board of Directors by the President, prior to announcement. Although the intention is to award the President’s Medal annually, in exceptional circumstances the President may not make an award.
