Feeling like doing a deep dive into solar technologies? A great place to start is by visiting the Technical Divisions forums and keeping up to date with real professionals and system owners' testimonies and strategies for better tech or implementation strategies! Maybe you want to show your dedication to a renewable future by taking up the mantle of a chair or vice chair in the upcoming Fall Election? Make sure to check out the details below if this sounds right up your alley!The Technical Divisions caucus at SOLAR 2022 was an opportunity to reflect on the accomplishments of the ASES Technical Divisions and the opportunities ahead.
The Technical Divisions continued to be instrumental in reviewing conference proposals for correctness and contribution to the ASES mission, and then checking submissions to the conference proceedings volume published by Springer. Going forward, the Divisions will have more input in the conference planning through sending a delegate to the conference National Organizing Committee, and alignment of session themes with Division topics.
The Divisions have been recruiting speakers for monthly ASES webinars. Divisions also contribute to Solar Today and are looking to do more with outreach through ASES's other communication avenues.
One area for growth will be partnering with professional associations to offer continuing education credits for webinars. Webinars can also be linked to ASES student chapter activities and mentoring initiatives.
