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
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
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.
