Welcome! We are pleased that you are interested in the activities of the ASM International - Los Alamos Chapter.
We always enjoy new members, whether you are new to town, staying for a short-term assignment, have been here for years or have just discovered ASM.
Our meetings are open to the public, so if you have an interest, contact one of our officers. We also support several local activities including science fairs and educational endeavors. If you are interested in support for an activity, please contact the officer associated with that area for consideration.
Please take a few minutes to explore our new web site hosted by ASM International. You will find a mixture of Los Alamos Chapter data along with information and tools to help you get the most out of your ASM membership. Enjoy!
