ASTM Update – May 2018

Article by Jeri Massengill, CEO

I am glad to report we had great attendance at the recent ASTM E50.02 Subcommittee meetings held last October and again early last month in San Diego.  Why did we have a great turnout?

  • Outreach by ASTM Task Group Chairs and Officers to recruit new members.
  • Discussions have started on revisions to E1527 – Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Standard.
  • The E50 Social! A fun get-together to network with colleagues, meet new ASTM members, and exchange ideas over drinks and appetizers.

There are 13 ASTM standards and 2 proposed standards that fall under the E50.02 Subcommittee on Real Estate Assessment and Management.
