ASTM International to Have Large Presence at Pittcon, President Kathie Morgan, Others to Speak


On Monday, Katharine Morgan, president of ASTM International – a global standards developer – will speak at Pittcon 2019 on the role of ASTM standards in supporting a healthy and sustainable environment. 

Pittcon is the world’s leading annual conference and expo on laboratory science. The five-day event attracts attendees from over 90 countries around the world, including industry, academia, government, and more. 

“ASTM International technical committees have hundreds of standards that promote the environment,” says Morgan. “The results are clear: cleaner air and water; eco-friendly homes and offices buildings, enhanced recycling programs, and more.” Morgan will outline several technical committees that directly support sustainability efforts during her presentation at 9:45 a.m. (Rm. 116).  

In addition to Morgan, Pat Picariello, ASTM International director of technical committee operations, will also give a performance on the role of additive manufacturing standards as innovation enablers at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday (Nexus Theater I). Members of ASTM’s training and e-learning department and multimedia production services will also be leading an interactive discussion on emerging trends in training and development at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday (Nexus Theater II). 

ASTM will also have a booth at the expo, ##1137.
