Committee Involvement

Committee Involvement

Whether you're a seasoned professional or just beginning your career in the materials sciences, ASM members are encouraged to become more deeply involved in the Society through committee membership. ASM committees and councils capture key directional shifts in member needs and translate those needs into action items for potential development. Their input and recommendations enable the ASM Board of Trustees to establish effective policies, set meaningful budgets, and oversee society operations.

People across the materials engineering and science profession will tell you their occupation is far more than a job.  It's a "love what I do" passion, a lifelong hobby that transcends "work for pay" to a pursuit that rewards on a much deeper level.  

That's why ASM offers countless volunteering, mentoring, and teaching opportunities to fulfill your personal desire to give back, touch others, and inspire learning.

ASM Boards, committees, and councils meet on a regular basis. As the eyes and ears of the ASM Board, society committees and councils are invaluable for improving service to ASM members and customers.
