  Institutes Session Objectives
We will answer the following questions in
  this session:
• What is An Institute?
• Overview of Existing Institutes
  – Who are they?
  – What do they do?
  – How are they different from other sectors?
• What is the Institute Sector Board (ISB)?
• Should your group consider becoming an
    Institutes – Who We Are
• ASME members & volunteers
• Dedicated ASME staff
• Governed by ASME Policies 16.3 & 16.4
• Institutes operate independently but still
  work towards the ASME mission through
  all their programs
• IGTI & IPTI both strive to serve and
  expand their core markets while continually
  promoting ASME and its benefits.
IPTI Staff
  IPTI Board

Institute boards strive to be strategic rather than
  tactical, since tactics are delegated to operating
  committees & staff.

Note – the IGTI Board uses the Division –
 Executive Committee model.
Institutes Sector Board (ISB)
  Grow and improve ASME’s Institutes

 Provide the organizational and
 strategic linkages that enable ASME
 Institutes to succeed.
  ISB Membership
The ISB consists of leaders from across the
  Institutes Sector:
• Senior VP
• Senior VP Elect (non-voting)
• VP from each Institute (IGTI, IPTI)
• Chair from each Institute’s Board
• Vice Chair from Each Institute (non-voting)
• Sector Managing Director (non-voting)
• Lead staff from each Institute (non-voting)
• LDI/Eclipse Intern (non-voting).
 ISB Key Objectives
• Serve as communication link to and from
  the ASME BoG
• Share best practices among the Institutes
  and other ASME Sectors
• Facilitate communications and awareness
  with other ASME Sectors
• Facilitate the development of new institutes
• Recommend mergers and/or acquisitions of
  outside organizations to become Institutes
  of ASME.
 Types of Institute Structures
• Market specific group, similar to a Division
  but focused on all aspects of that
  marketplace (e.g., IGTI)
• Umbrella group focused on a broader
  industry, made up of multiple Divisions
  (e.g., IPTI)
• Other types of arrangements are possible,
  since the Institutes model is flexible; does
  anyone in the audience have any ideas?
 Overview of IGTI & IPTI Events
• The next several slides will provide more
  detailed information on IGTI and IPTI, to
  serve as examples for what kinds of events
  and activities are commonly created and
  supported by the current Institutes

  How Institutes Differ From Divisions
Institutes typically:
• Have paid dedicated staff
• Pay for their own offices
• Budgets approved by COFI
• Strategic, market-focused volunteer Boards
• Significant reserves in custodial fund
• Generally, conduct a wider range of activities.
    How Institutes Are Similar to Divisions
• We are all part of ASME
• Driven by active volunteers
• Focus on technical areas
• Conduct conferences, do peer review, author
  publications and journals
• Want to grow their units and help ASME grow in
  revenue, membership, and member benefits.
       How Institutes Benefit ASME
• Provide focus on specific industries and their
  specific member needs
• Allows for more volunteer involvement
• Dedicated staff in combination with active
  volunteers means more successful events
• Can be self-sufficient, self-guided, and financially
  stable, thus reducing parent management
• Can provide intellectual property and technical
  resources to parent
• Provides an opportunity for larger and more
  diverse membership.
ASME Policy 16.3 Requirements (handout)
An ASME Institute:
• Must have annual gross revenue > $1 MM
• Must generate a surplus, net of all business and operational
  costs, including reimbursement of ASME administrative and
  overhead costs
• Must have a governing Board
• Must have a charter approved by the ISB & BOG
• Must have suitable vision and mission statements
• Must have dedicated staff and volunteers to direct its
  activities in accordance with ASME operating procedures.
        Potential Future Institutes
• Existing ASME Divisions, but also…
• Many smaller Mechanical Engineering
  – Specific Industry Segment
  – Geographic Area
  – Member Demographics
• Even more candidate Engineering/Scientific
Discussion – Is My Group a Candidate to
      Become an Institute Now?
• Does anyone in the audience have any ideas on
  forming a new institute?
• To proceed, present your ideas and/or proposals
  to the ISB, they will discuss this with you and
  your group leadership (contact info on last slide)
• Assistance can be provided to create a business
  plan with organizing volunteers and staff from
