2018 – 2019


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 2018 / 2019.  You will find our upcoming season’s Program Schedule, a Membership Roster, listings for the Section, Regional and National officers, and our supporting advertisers. 

We are fortunate to have a diverse membership, representing all types of manufacturing, transportation, energy, laboratories and suppliers.  Experts in all of the NDT methods are among us.  These facts provide Chicago Section a strong foundation for insightful discourse, valuable instruction and thoughtful mentoring.  Our Educational Presentations benefit greatly as well.  Last season we had fantastic speakers; this season promises to be more of the same!

After beginning our ‘Outreach’ journey a couple of years ago, Chicago Section is definitely getting ‘back to class’ and bringing NDT to Junior High, High School and College students.  Our annual STEM Expo at IIT’s Danada Campus, is now augmented by annual Career Days at local Technical and High Schools.  And after a hiatus, the Section and its partners put on an extremely well attended Adult Education class.

Chicago Section was again honored to have been awarded the Gold Status for ASNT National’s President Award. 

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
