Committees

To plan and carry out the activities of American Society of Nepalese Engineers (ASNEngr)  the first slate of the Board of Directors (6 Executive Officers and 30 Society Directors) were elected on July 5, 2008 at the First Annual Meeting & Conference of the Society held at the venue of the 2008 ANA Convention, Hunt Valley (greater Baltimore area), MD. The members of the Executive Committee and Board of Directors can be found on About Us page.

Steering Committee— The formation of the Steering Committee (governing body) of the Society was approved at the General Organizing Meeting of the Society held at the 2007 NASeA-ANMA Joint Convention in Atlanta, GA on September 02, 2007 and its officers were elected. The Steering Committee was charged to coordinate activities and execute duties for the Society until the formal election of its Board of Directors and Executive Officers. This was the top most committee to  which all other committees/ subcommittees will report to. (The tenure of this committee expired on July 05 when the results of election of the first slate of  Executive Officers and Society Directors were announced.)
