Dick Williamson Appointed to ASME

Dick Williamson, chairman of T.D. Williamson, is appointed to a fellowship with the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
A formal induction ceremony will be held on Sunday, Nov. 15, at this year’s ASME International Mechanical Engineering Conference & Expo in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
Heavily engaged with ASME since 1998, Williamson helped formed the group’s Pipeline Systems Division. At that time, Williamson noted, “I may have been the only non-mechanical engineer in the group.”
Since then, Williamson has participated in many of the organization’s key growth initiatives, including the industry’s premier pipeline engineering event, the International Pipeline Conference. In addition, Williamson and his fellow ASME members founded Rio-Pipe, the sister biennial event for the South American (mostly Brazilian) industry, and created both the International Offshore Pipeline Forum, now in its 4th year, and the India Oil and Gas Pipeline Conference, preparing for its 3rd event in 2010.
Williamson also served as chair of the PSD Division and has continued to serve on its Executive Committee. He currently serves on the board of the International Petroleum Technology institute, a group that oversees the work of the PSD, Petroleum and Offshore divisions of ASME.
“It’s an honor to be among the 22 recipients of this fellowship,” said Williamson. My long-standing association with ASME serves to demonstrate how careers and professional development are truly enriched through commitment to volunteer organizations.”
T.D. Williamson is one of the world’s most recognized name in pipeline equipment and services.
