Regarding membership, SEMS is working with leaders from
IISE, SHS (Society for Health Systems) and ASEM (American Society of
Engineering Management) to define new membership options. These options will
grow the membership, encourage conversion from student to professional
membership status, and provide cost-effective ways for engineering managers to
affiliate with SEMS. Providing these new membership options will take some time
to accomplish, but you can expect to hear more details about these changes in
the future as the initiative progresses.Click here to read more.
The annual election for SEMS is coming soon! The society stays vibrant and strong when our members serve and volunteer in
various ways. One of the most significant ways of serving the society is
through our board of directors and officer positions (President-elect,
president, past president and director). Your SEMS executive team is currently
finalizing the slate of candidates. As you read this, some of you may be
considering whether you would be interested in serving yourself. We want a rich
slate of candidates for all positions and are happy to discuss the expectations
with you if you want more information.
Please contact us if you are interested in
nominating yourself or a colleague. Nominees for director positions must
be current members of IISE and SEMS. Nominees for the president-elect must
also be a past director.

recommendation of the SEMS selection committee for both the student paper and
track paper competition.
Best paper winners must present their findings in the
ISERC Engineering Management Track at the IISE Annual Conference & Expo,
