ASTM TRAINING SESSIONS
ASTM staff will provide several training sessions on various subjects to educate and assist officers, members and non-members of ASTM committees. The following topics will be discussed:
Standards setting and leadership go hand in hand. This module will highlight how your participation in ASTM can facilitate your professional development and enhance your leadership skills. You will also learn about the variety of leadership positions as well as opportunities available to enrich your participation. This module is targeted for members who are interested in taking a more active role in the ASTM technical committee activities.
During this joint Technical Committee Operations and Editorial module, we will review both new and revised standards as they go through the development and publication process. We will cover how standard ideas are introduced, drafted, and publicized as well as review ASTM's electronic tools and time-tested techniques for accelerating the development of your standard. Included in the workshop will be a brief review of work items registration, the three stages of balloting, and an explanation of the key roles of your editor and the standard's technical contact.
Refreshments will be available at both sessions.
