Meeting attendees are invited to a welcome and orientation session. This session will provide a brief introduction to ASTM, its process electronic tools, and international activities. This is an interactive session and questions are encouraged as we like attendees to feel comfortable in participating at their standards meetings. Facilitated by ASTM staff, this session provides new and experienced members and visitors a chance to connect at the beginning of the Committee Week.
ASTM International officially launched the Emerging Professionals program in 2016. ASTM technical committees are welcome to nominate a candidate that fits the program criteria and who wants to become more active on their committee. The objective of the Emerging Professionals program is to create a new opportunity with long-term benefits for new members who have demonstrated the potential to be industry and committee leaders. To view the workshop schedule, please visit Emerging Professionals . For more information contact Katerina Koperna at firstname.lastname@example.org
During this joint Technical Committee Operations and Editorial Module, we will focus on the process of standards development for new and existing standards. Topics covered include: Committee Balance, Subcommittee and Main Committee Balloting, review of the role of COS (Committee on Standards), handling of Negative votes, and the role of the editor and technical contact. This session will provide important and useful information and is intended for all members.

ASTM Training and eLearning offers award-winning continuing education courses and industry-leading online training programs.
