A Message from the MPMD Chair

Greetings MPMD members!

Welcome to the Materials Processing & Manufacturing Division (MPMD) of TMS! The next few years promise to be action-packed for TMS in general, and for the MPMD in particular! The TMS staff and volunteers are working hard to better serve you, the members of our society, through programming, publications, scholarships, awards, training, workshops, social functions—the list goes on and on!

We can't do any of these exciting things without the hard work of the excellent and dedicated TMS staff, but we also need help from you, the society's members, who are willing to volunteer your time to help the society continue delivering value-added benefits and services to TMS members and to the broader materials science community. I would strongly encourage you to get involved by taking advantage of the wealth of opportunities to serve the society, including organizing technical symposia, serving on our technical committees, submitting your original manuscripts to the TMS technical journals, nominating your colleagues for one of the division or society awards, and by donating to the TMS Foundation. Your help in all of these activities, and many others, is what will maintain TMS as the premier materials society that it is today, and make TMS even better as we move forward into the future.

Please don't hesitate to contact me for more information on these and other exciting opportunities to get involved in your society. Thanks for your membership and your continued support!
