He has also been involved professionally as you can see from this list:
• Founding Member of the Greater Philadelphia University Council of Engineering Deans.
• Chairman of the National Textile Center (NTC) Operating Board (2006-2007).
NTC is a federally funded research consortium consisting of Georgia Tech, North Carolina State, Auburn, Clemson, Cornell, UMASS-Dartmouth, UC Davis and Philadelphia University.
• Advisory Board of the College of Engineering, Georgia Tech (1990-1995).
• President, The Fiber Society (1996).
• Chairman, Textile Engineering Division-American Society of Mechanical Engineers (1994-1996).
He has been or currently is a member of the following groups:
• American Society for Engineering Education (member of Engineering Deans Council).
• Institute of Industrial Engineers.
• ASME - Textile Engineering Division, Chairman, 1980, 1994.
• American Conference of Academic Deans.
• The Fiber Society - Fiber Society Lecturer, 1986-1987, 1993-1994, President 1996.
• SAMPE - Society for Advanced Materials and Process Engineering.
• The Textile Institute (United Kingdom).
