Notice something different?
AEG
If you have renewed your membership online, thank you. You undoubtedly noticed that the online renewal process had a few extra steps. AEG is working hard to collect important information on our members, such as licenses held and degrees earned.

We appreciate the time you take to update this demographic information. It will help AEG as we continue the Needs Assessment work and refine our products and services. We also know that the new online renewal form had some glitches. As a new program, we tested various scenarios but did not catch all possible issues that could occur. Thank you for being patient. We have worked with our programmers to correct the errors. We hope anyone who experienced issues renewing online contacted us so we could fix the problem and continue their membership.

If you know any member who has not renewed yet, please encourage them to renew today.

US lead in science and technology shrinking: Emerging economies shifting global S&T landscape
National Science Board
The United States' predominance in science and technology eroded further during the last decade, as several Asian nations — particularly China and South Korea — rapidly increased their innovation capacities. According to a new report released by the National Science Board, the policy making body of the National Science Foundation and an adviser to the president and Congress, the major Asian economies, taken together, now perform a larger share of global R&D than the U.S., and China performs nearly as much of the world's high-tech manufacturing as the U.S.
