General Meeting 100 Year Anniversary Theme Revealed


In 1921, a 35-year-old man stood before the American Boiler Manufacturers Association and pronounced: 

“Generally speaking, the National Board is the states consolidated into one body which may be termed the enforcement body of the ASME Boiler Code Committee, and we have three primary objectives in view, which are: one code, one inspector, and one stamp.”

This visionary was Carl O. Myers, who at the time was the Ohio chief boiler inspector and secretary/treasurer for a new national organization he established on December 2, 1919 – The National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors.  

C.O. Myers would go on to spend the next four decades of his life dedicated to the National Board and the boiler and pressure vessel industry.  

To celebrate the organization’s 100 year anniversary (1919-2019), the 88th National Board/ASME General Meeting theme commemorates the words of its founder and his enduring legacy: 

One Code. 
One Inspector. 
One Stamp. 
One Hundred Years.

The 88th General Meeting will take place May 6-10, 2019 at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City. More information about this special General Meeting celebration will be available early next year.
