TMS Young Professionals Program
The Young Professionals Program was created in 1993 to encourage young members to increase their involvement in The Minerals, Metals & Materials
Society (TMS). Funding from the AIME Endowment Fund helped to support the Young Professionals Program, with additional support from the TMS Foundation.
What is a Young Professional?
A Young Professional is active in the materials field, age 40 or under, and interested in taking a leadership role in the Society. Traditionally, this is a group of people who attend TMS meetings to present papers and attend sessions but are not involved in the inner workings of TMS (i.e., the committees).
|YOUNG PROFESSIONALS MISSION |
The mission of the Young Professionals Committee is to create opportunities and provide avenues for young professionals to increase their
involvement in The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society. Important issues that the Young Professionals Committee has identified and is working to address
- Networking between younger and senior members of TMS through a mentoring program.
- Programming that is useful to young professionals.
- Programming that addresses materials-based concerns for private industry.
- An appreciation for and awareness of TMS activities.
