Governance

ASM International is a member-driven society. Nominated by members, the ASM Board of Trustees directs the activities of the society for the good of the entire membership.

ASM Board of Trustees

The ASM Board of Trustees directs the affairs of the society and establishes the society's purpose, goals, and objectives. The board also approves the society's financial plans and budgets, optimizes the assets of the society, selects the managing director, and provides advice and counsel to the officers of ASM.

Student Board Member Program

In recent years, the Boards of ASM, the ASM Heat Treating Society and the ASM Thermal Spray Society have also taken steps to bring youthful energy and ideas to their leadership through the Student Board Member Program.
