Members & Affiliates
TAMEST members include Texas’ 250 members of the Institute of Medicine (IOM), National Academy of Engineering (NAE), and the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), known collectively as the National Academies, as well as the state’s 10 Nobel Laureates.
TAMEST members represent a significant number of universities, organizations, and companies throughout Texas.
TAMEST has 17 member institutions located across Texas. Member institutions are Texas universities and institutions where TAMEST members hold positions on the faculty or administration. Member institutions also provide financial support to TAMEST through annual dues. The presidents and chancellors of these institutions are affiliate members of TAMEST.
Established when TAMEST was formed in 2004, the inaugural Industry and Community Affiliates (ICA) Committee represented an elite group of prominent Texas leaders who played a critical role in the formation of TAMEST, providing strategic advice and financial support.
ICA Committee membership is being expanded to showcase top Texas companies who are committed to TAMEST’s vision, including representatives from major Texas companies, research institutions, and foundations. New members joining in 2013 include Dr. Larry Faulkner, president emeritus of UT Austin, Patrick Balthrop, president and chief executive officer of Luminex Corporation, and Norbert Dittrich, president of the Welch Foundation.
Sara N. Ortwein, president of ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company (URC), was recently appointed chair of the ICA Committee. The committee will be working to ensure industry engagement in forums for the effective management of the state’s water resources as the first of many critical issues that impact Texas’ future economic growth and the well-being of its citizens.
