Issues Management & Social Action Committee (E-07)

E-O7, the Issues Management & Social Action Committee, exists to identify issues that are of concern to and within the expertise of the membership of ASABE. Equally important, the committee endeavors to support ASABE as a professional engineering society, and its members as individuals, in placing concern for human welfare in highest importance in the implementation of technical developments.

E-07 engages in several specific activities to obtain these objectives. First, the committee promotes publication of position papers that show how agricultural and biological engineering is involved in various issues of social concern such as safety, standards, manpower, housing, environment, chemicals, wastes, rural development, and others.

In addition, the committee studies the posture of the Society in relation to issues of professional and social responsibility and identifies for the Board of Trustees, policies that are in harmony with contemporary needs and problems.

E-07 develops mechanisms that encourage individual ASABE members to consider, increasingly, the long-term implications of their work in terms of public benefit.

Finally, the committee promotes public awareness that ASABE maintains continuous concern for human and environmental values as these may be influenced by professional activities of its members.

ASABE members interested in becoming involved with the important work of E-07 are invited to contact the staff liaison, Dolores Landeck, for further information.
