2014-2015 International Board

The International Board develops, sustains, and promotes the global activities of the American Society for Microbiology. It accomplishes this mission through the integrated implementation of the following goals:

  • Promote the microbiological sciences worldwide by providing a diverse array of educational programs and services;
  • Develop collaborative relationships with national and international scientific organizations worldwide;
  • Ensure that the products and services of ASM effectively serve its international membership;
  • Build capacity of clinical/public health microbiology laboratories internationally through externally funded projects;
  • Ensure that ASM harnesses its scientific expertise to impact microbiologically-related international policy;
  • Develop an ASM marketing strategy that ensures effective international outreach.


The International Board consists of the following committees:


Committee on Global Engagement (CGE)

The mission of CGE is to work across ASM Divisions to engage and foster communities and individuals worldwide towards meeting shared challenges through science. CGE has three goals to meet this mission:

1. Engage scientists globally to expand ASM's international network

  • Ensure international members benefit from ASM's resources; design, develop and implement new international programs for all members
  • Support recruitment strategies and programs specific to international members, including students 
  • Design, develop and manage programs that recognize outstanding international members 

2. Develop programs that foster outreach, knowledge sharing, collaboration and diplomacy

  • Manage and strengthen the ASM International Ambassador Program
  • Facilitate networking opportunism among ASM members worldwide
  • Develop and support institutional partnerships with other scientific societies and organizations

3. Foster the advancement of microbiology communities worldwide through access to ASM resources

  • Advance the Global Outreach Program
  • Develop a network of ASM Resource Centers
  • Support institutional mentorship of new societies and associations in developing countries

2014-2015 Committee on Global Engagement


Committee on Sustainable Development (CSD)

CSD, created as part of the reorganization of the International Board in 2012, supports the delivery of the Global Laboratory Capacity Strengthening (LabCap) Program in resource-limited countries towards advancing the International Board's broader vision of promoting science diplomacy and sustainability. 

1. Local Mentor Programs

  • ASM is expanding a pilot program that engages local mentors. Local mentors are equipped with the ASM mentoring package and linked to ASM mentors for support. They are trained to act as mentors for the lower tier level laboratories as a practical, cost-effective and country-owned sustainable program. 


2. Local NGOs

  • ASM has partnered with the African Medical Laboratory Services (AMLS) in Cote d'Ivoire to mentor laboratories toward ISO accreditation. While leveraging the benefits of the country partner, ASM is also building the institutional capacity of AMLS to take on some of the capacity building functions in the future. 


3. Local Contractors

  • ASM is exploring a model to hire an ASM program manager or local technical consultant to provide technical and program support. 


4. South-South Collaboration

  • ASM has established South-South collaborations to share best practices and strengthen laboratory systems. For example, ASM experts from Brazil are providing onsite mentoring and technical assistance to Mozambique, as well as hosting Mozambican laboratory technologists for training in Brazil.


5. Bio-Resource Centers (BRC)

  • The network of BRCs across the globe provides a powerful platform for providing ASM resources and distance learning. The BRC network will provide professional development and continuing education communities. 


6. Membership

  • The CSD is looking to increase membership in partner countries, in order to provide ASM resources and to leverage members in capacity building efforts. 


7. Sister Societies

  • ASM is looking to actively support other sister societies in order to work collaboratively on shared goals.
