2020 – 2021


Chicago Section Chairman’s Message

Dear ASNT Chicago Section:

This has been an extraordinary year. 

Chicago Section was again honored to have been awarded the Gold Status for ASNT National’s President Award.  Credit goes to the volunteers that serve on the Board and the Section members that donate their time.  They make the Adult Education and Student Outreach programs possible.  Thanks also goes to those who nominate our members for Association awards, the individuals who make sure memberships are renewed and solicit new members and then there are the people that insure the Section’s financial stability.  This is truly a team effort and Chicago Section continues to excel.

Chicago Section has a diverse membership, representing all types of manufacturing, transportation, energy, laboratories, consultants and suppliers.  We enjoy some of the most interesting Educational Meeting topics; if you haven’t joined us in a while, please do so – especially since virtual meetings are becoming the format of choice because of in-person meeting restrictions.

Here is the Chicago Section Yearbook for 2020 / 2021.  You will find our upcoming season’s Program Schedule, a Membership Roster, listings for the Section, Regional and National officers, and our supporting advertisers. 

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

To all the NDT professionals reading this – thank you for what you do!  You make this world a safer and better place!  You are, in a word – ESSENTIAL. 

Chuck Johnson
