Join the Emerging Professionals Committee

If you are an early-career professional and a member of TMS, we encourage you to join the TMS Emerging Professionals Committee (formerly the TMS Young Professionals Committee) to fully explore your options for career development within TMS and to guide the Society's future activities in this area. Membership in the committee is open to any TMS member who is ten (10) years past their terminal degree or forty (40) years of age, whichever comes later.
