In this first issue of the SDOB District E US, I would like to introduce myself and the other students that help to make this possible.

About Me

 My name is Brennan White and I am the Chair of the SDOB. I served as Vice Chair of the SDOB for two years. In the Louisiana Tech University student section I have served as: Freshman Representative, ESA Chair, and Vice Chair. Several other students stepped up and joined the SDOB at the Student Professional Development Conference in Baton Rouge, LA.

The SDOB Volunteers

Cindy Spangler, University of Utah
Colin Carver,  Louisiana Tech University
Jamie Vredenburgh, Texas Tech University
Johnathan Tran, University of Arkansas
Matthew Stallard, Colorado State University
Myles DeRouen, University of Louisiana at Lafayette
Nick Skadberg, Colorado State University

 Sung Lee, University of Texas at Dallas


As you can see from the list above, the SDOB represents students from all across our district.

The SDOB communicates through weekly updates and a Google Groups page. At SLS in the fall, we will elect officers and define tasks for those positions.

Our Mission

There are many components of ASME that the typical student section in our district is missing. Some of the problem is a succession issue. However, I feel that a large part of the issue is that students are not engaged by ASME volunteers that know about all ASME has to offer. Well, here we are. We are students just like you who volunteer our time for the development of ASME as a society.

In the past, there have been issues with dedicated officers, unclear goals, and absent leadership.

Our goal for the 2012-2013 school year is make the presence of the SDOB known, starting with this paper.
