ASM Puget Sound Chapter
ASM Puget Sound The mission of the Puget Sound Chapter of ASM International is to inform, educate and stimulate discussion in the science, purpose, and function of conventional and advanced materials in society and industry, and to promote dialog in the advancement of materials science for the betterment of industry and the community at large.
As defined in the TMS Foundation Bylaws, the mission of the Foundation is "To engage the finest young minds in the design, processing and application of materials by stimulating the dynamic evolution of our educational and professional infrastructures."
The Association for Iron & Steel Technology (AIST) was established on January 1, 2004, with a goal of advancing the technical development, production, processing and application of iron and steel. The best practices of both predecessor organizations were incorporated into AIST, and we now have a strong, international, member-based technical organization that can sustain itself in an environment of continual change.
AIST is committed to presenting superior technical meetings, conferences, exhibits and publications to better serve those involved in the iron and steel community, including steel manufacturers, suppliers, consumers and academics.
The American Ceramic Society (ACerS) is a 100-year-old non-profit organization that serves the informational, educational, and professional needs of the international ceramics community. The Society's more than 7,500 members comprise a wide variety of individuals and interest groups that include engineers, scientists, researchers, manufacturers, plant personnel, educators, students, marketing and sales professionals, and others in related materials disciplines. ACerS provides members and subscribers in 80 countries with access to periodicals and books, meetings and expositions, and on-line technical information.
