2017 – 2018


Chicago Section Chairman’s Message

Fellow members of ASNT Chicago Section:

Thank you for your continuing support of the NDT profession and ASNT Chicago Section! 

Welcome to your Chicago Section Yearbook for 2017 / 2018.  You will find our upcoming season’s Program Schedule, a Membership Roster, listings for the Section, Regional and National officers, and our supporting advertisers. 

ASNT Chicago Section had a great 2016 / 2017!  Among the highlights:

                  - For the second year in a row the Section attained ‘Gold’ level in the President’s Award program

                  - Nominations for individual awards were rewarded

                  - The Section experienced membership growth

                  - Chicago Section hosted a Section Leadership Conference

                  - The Student Outreach program held its first school visit and laid the foundation for upcoming visits

                  - The move to our new meeting venue, Crazy Pour, has been met with positive reviews

This year Chicago Section will be stepping up its efforts to make it into more classrooms for presentations, as part of the Student Outreach program.  We hope to host an Adult Education day, bringing in experts for presentations on evolving and new aspects and technologies in NDT.  An initiative has been undertaken to contact NDT Certificate Holders not active with ASNT and bring them into the fold.  We have a dedicated and positive Board that will be working on these initiatives, but know that your assistance is welcomed as well!  If you want to get involved please let me know.

I would be remiss if I did not extend my sincere thanks to the Chicago Section Board.  You make my job easy.  The support is invaluable and very much appreciated!

To all the NDT professionals reading this – thank you for what you do!  You do make this world a safer and better place!

Chuck Johnson
