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 whether face-to-face or virtual.
I am looking forward to serving a third year as your PNWS Chair. We have once again achieved the Gold Level Presidents Award and I hope to keep that streak going!
We have a fun and exciting year planned that includes the 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.
