Long-time IGTI staffer Judy Osborn retires.


The ASME International Gas Turbine Institute is sad to announce the retirement of long-time staff member, Senior Program Manager of Events and Member Services Judy Osborn. Osborn was honored during Turbo Expo 2011 among the hundreds of engineers who have worked with her throughout the years. She has been with IGTI since 1996, completing more than 15 years of service to ASME and the IGTI community. During her tenure at IGTI Osborn has overseen all aspects of the organization (conferences, expositions, volunteer services, and workforce development) but is best known for her staff leadership role in support of Turbo Expo.

Osborn holds a degree in communications from the University of Georgia and has more than 30 years of experience in working with non-profit associations, providing organizational and logistical support for meetings, publications, and member services.

"What I've enjoyed most during my time at ASME IGTI are the people," says Osbom. "My fondest recollections will be of the various individuals from all over the world with whom I've become acquainted and interacted. This includes volunteers, program participants, co-workers, and those throughout the association and event management industries. We've definitely had many fun and memorable experiences together."

"Certainly, another one of the perks of the job for me has been the international travel," Osborn added. "It would be impossible to select one place over another as a favorite because I greatly appreciate the opportunity to see and do so much."

"It has been tremendously satisfying to see Turbo Expo continue to mature and maintain success over the years and to know it is fulfilling important objectives for engineering professionals. I am particularly gratified by the successful development of the networking event for women in the turbomachinery community. I have constantly sought to foster additional and pertinent platforms for enhancing each participant's experience and career development as well as to contribute to the advancement of the field."

"I wish each person success and happiness. I will not miss the day-to-day work routine, but I will absolutely miss all of them."

Upon retirement, Osborn will focus on her hobbies, which include painting, bowling, and traveling, as well as spending time with her family.

She will be missed at Turbo Expo 2012 in Copenhagen and beyond!
