Pacific Northwest Section Achieves Ninth consecutive President's Point Gold Award

What does the Pacific Northwest Section do anyway? Well, for starters we hold a Technical Meeting almost every month from September through May, with the exception of those months when we offer social events. We also sponsor a Radiation Safety Seminar on one Saturday each Spring, and a Golf Scramble with BBQ Banquet held in the summertime.
You can almost always find us every 2nd Monday from September thru May meeting somewhere in the greater Seattle area, and all members are welcome to attend and/or participate. So, be sure to check our meeting schedule herein and watch for the monthly reminder email for the place, time, and listing of topic and speaker.

As NDT Professionals we see the value and benefit of membership in ASNT everyday. Now as mentors, we need to encourage our non-member colleagues, such as those new to NDT or that have been in the profession for years but have not gotten around to joining us, to see the value and benefit that being a member will add to their career. So please do what you can to spread the word as we endeavor to grow our membership, and thereby our strength, as a profession.
