Message from the SOC Chair
Benefits of ASNT membership from the SOC chairperson
In light of the Wall Street roller coaster, corporate scandals, mergers, downsizing, and '60 Second' Business Plans, it has come to mind that many of us are not taking advantage of the most important benefit of ASNT - networking and its counterpart, education.
Networking is more than meeting new people, hearing the latest on who is retiring or changing jobs, or even what companies are doing well or not so well. Networking is educational! When people from the same industry meet, the conversation always turns to work. Every meeting I attend, I hear new and exciting information that stimulates the mind and helps me look at problems and solutions in a new way. Not only from a prepared speaker presentation, but from the questions asked of the speakers and the casual conversation of my colleagues. Often this information is not directly connected to the primary method of NDT used in my company. However, down the road a mental light comes on and I am able to apply what I heard to my efforts. In this way I am a more valuable employee.
Companies benefit from being actively involved in a local section and encouraging their employees to attend the meetings. By doing so, the employees have the opportunity to broaden their horizons, learn new things and think in creative ways. They can also take advantage of the educational programs offered through the section, benefiting both employer and employee. Attendance at regional and national meetings reap the same benefits only on a much larger scale.
It's no secret, many industry segments are an aging group. Many of my customers and colleagues have retirement on their minds. In my local section I am one of the younger members. This is not a good sign! Local section educational and mentoring programs will help bring young minds and talents to the industry, revitalizing it and the companies that comprise it.
