The upcoming ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Week will be held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, from Oct. 31 to Nov. 5 at the Westin Bayshore Hotel. Various committee meetings will be held during the week to discuss the ASME requirements for boilers, pressure vessels and nuclear power plant components.
A series of educational workshops will be offered in conjunction with the Code Week meetings. The Workshops are presented by Code experts covering current topics related to the design of boilers, pressure vessels, and nuclear power plant technologies. Continue reading
The 2010 edition of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, including updates and revisions to meet changes industry practices, in available for purchase.
The code establishes rules of safety relating to the design, construction, operation, testing, and maintenance of boilers, transport tanks, nuclear power plant components, and other pressure systems. Continue reading
We are seeking your assistance in monitoring legislative proposals that may come before your state legislature or engineering licensing board that could change the current education requirements.
In 2006, the National Council of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors (NCEES) adopted a change to the Model Law for professional engineers to require, after the year 2020, a master’s degree in engineering or bachelor’s degree plus 30 additional credits as a prerequisite for licensure as a professional engineer.

I’ve been doing a lot of deep thinking lately about a subject that I’d like to share with all of you. And it all starts with the question I now pose — What do you want your legacy to be?
Now I realize this is a really big question that could mean a number of different things – family, spiritual, work, community, etc. But since I’m the membership director of your professional association, let’s narrow the question to focus on ASME, and re-ask it as…What do you want your ASME Membership legacy to be?

Pre-Conference Workshops being held in conjunction with IGTI’s
2010 Gas Turbine Users Symposium!
Monday, Oct. 4, 2010
George R. Brown Convention Center
Basic Gas Turbine Metallurgy and Repair Technology
Overview and Objective: This workshop will explain super-alloy materials, component damage experienced from service exposure, techniques used to analyze the remaining life of components removed from service, protective coatings, component repair technologies, and quality assurance of repairs. The workshop includes many case study examples and the last section is devoted to a workshop where attendees develop component repair solutions. Participants may submit questions in advance regarding repair issues faced in their jobs. Earn 7 Professional Development Hours (PDH’s) and receive a certificate of completion!
Gas Turbine Combines Cycle Primer
Overview and Objective: The objective of the workshop is to provide the practicing engineers in power generation industry with fundamental thermodynamic principles that govern the design and performance of Gas Turbine Combined Cycle power plants. Attending this workshop will benefit the participant’s business via increased productivity, reliability, innovative potential, and quality via reduction in costly design errors. Another significant benefit is increased employee job satisfaction through a better understanding of the underlying engineering beauty in sometimes seemingly tedious tasks. Earn 7 Professional Development Hours (PDH’s) and receive a certificate of completion!

An international standard recognized in 30 countries, the ASME BPE addresses the requirements of the bioprocessing, pharmaceutical, and personal care product industries as well as other applications with relatively high levels of hygienic requirements, covering the subjects of materials, design, fabrication, inspections, testing, and certification.
ASME BPE Code Week brings together high-level industry experts from all over the world to discuss how the Standard is and can be used to address trends and issues affecting the industry. Participants include representatives from regulatory agencies, multinational corporations, plant owners, pressure equipment fabricators, designers, constructors, materials suppliers, inspection organizations, as well as others.
This event offers a unique opportunity for workshop attendees to network with the experts and participate in the Code Week committee meetings. For more information, click here.
