How To Get Started
JOM advisors are typically selected by, and act as representatives of, TMS technical committees. The best way to become a JOM advisor is to first join the TMS technical committee that best suits your interests and volunteer to help with JOM activities. TMS issues a Call for Volunteers for technical committees each year in February. All TMS members will receive an e-mail invitation to join a technical committee at this time.
For detailed information on the JOM advisor's responsibilities, view the JOM Advisor Tools web page.
