We have several positions that we need to vote on in FPD and FYEE for the upcoming year. The situation necessitates an electronic vote this year. Please provide your vote by Monday June 22 at 5 pm (Eastern time zone). [ Link to Vote Here ].

  1. ASEE Virtual Conference, June 21-24

The 2020 ASEE Annual Conference and Exposition, previously scheduled for Montreal, Canada, will now be an online experience only. The new program schedule can be found here. We hope you will join us virtually for the FPD program, including technical sessions with live, moderated Q&A with paper authors!

Due to the virtual nature of the conference, we have decided to not hold a division social or to give out best presentation awards this year. We will resume this tradition at next year’s conference.

  1. Join us at the Division Mixer!

The Division Mixer is scheduled for Monday June 22nd starting at 4:30 pm (Eastern time zone). FPD will have a virtual booth. Feel free to stop by and check out our booth!

  1. FPDBusiness Meeting – Zoom Link

Our FPD Business Meeting is scheduled for Thursday June 25th at 4 pm (Eastern time zone). We will hear reports from a number of our division officers, from our PIC chair, announce our new leadership, and share awards for the year. In order to ensure as many of our members can attend as possible, we will be conducting our meeting through Zoom instead of the ASEE virtual platform. Please use the following Zoom Link for the Business Meeting: [ https://tennessee.zoom.us/j/98930409884 ].
