Pacific Northwest Section ASNT

Message from the In-Coming Chair

Dear Pacific NW Section Members,
I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful summer and soaked up a year’s supply of sunshine! Now that the drizzling rains have begun, you can finally look forward to staying dry at our upcoming section meetings.
I am looking forward to serving a second year as your PNWS Chair. We have once again achieved the Gold Level Presidents Award and I hope to keep that streak going!
This year we will continue our “Building Connections” theme by meeting at 3:30PM before every section meeting to have fun socializing at ACME Billiards and Bowling, located only a few short miles from our regular meeting venue at the Old Spaghetti Factory in Tukwila WA. That way you have the option to come early to beat the traffic or come later to the section meeting which begins at 6:30PM on the 2nd Monday of every month.
We have a fun and exciting year planned that includes the 2019 NDT of Composites Conference (April 30th – May 2nd), PNWS Golf Tournament, PNWS Radiation Safety Seminar, and our annual Student Scholarship Awards Celebration.
I am looking forward to seeing all of you and hearing your ideas about ways in which we can support our NDT community and any fun event suggestions you would like us to organize to continue building greater connections.
Sincerely,
Kathy Ferguson

An Important Note from
Our Membership Chair

Hello Fellow PNWS Members,

As I transition into our Section's Membership Chairperson position, for the upcoming year, I would like to ask all of you a favor.
Would you please think about why you are a member of ASNT and how you can help our local section succeed?
We have a very diverse cross section of members with a wealth of experience across many different market segments. We also have relied heavily on some very KEY industries in our region like Boeing and the Ship Yards. But we are seeing new manufacturing processes come into our state that have introduced for example composites which are not easily inspected by our conventional methods. But they can be inspected by UT, X-ray, Bond Testing, and newer technologies like Thermal Imaging and Laser Shearography. Our industry is always in a growth mode to improve our capabilities and keep us all relevant in our field. So, as someone who has been at this for some time, don’t ever feel you would not be welcome at our meetings or feel you don’t know enough to meet with your peers and colleagues. We are all of the same family of professionals who are after the same goals of success and accomplishment. We can learn from each other and if we don’t’ have the answers we know of someone who does, in most cases. And, we will always be connected as inspectors and NDT professionals as we all follow the ASNT Mission Statement.

“ASNT Exists To Create a Safer World by Advancing Scientific, Engineering, and Technical Knowledge in the Field of Nondestructive Testing”

If you have any questions about how I can help you or answer any questions about your membership please reach out. We appreciate your continued presence as a member and look forward to seeing you at our meetings. If you are unable to make meetings please let me know what your issues may be regarding our meeting dates or location. Your board of directors and I are committed to addressing any and all concerns that you may have. Help me help you make a difference by coming out and meeting with us this year.
Sincerely,
Flynn Spears

PNWS Membership Chairperson 2017 - 2018
