You can contribute to the work of the TMS Extraction & Processing Division by joining a TMS technical committee. Begin by selecting the EPD committee that best aligns with your professional interests. TMS issues a Call for Volunteers each year in February, inviting members to join a TMS technical committee. You can respond to this call for volunteers and attend a technical committee meeting in person at the TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition. Please Note: TMS membership is required for committee membership.
As a technical committee member, you can become further involved in developing technical programming, publications content, and professional development events. You can also get involved by nominating a candidate for an EPD award, which recognizes excellence within the EPD's scope of activities. For a complete listing of ways to get involved with TMS, visit the Volunteer Opportunities section of the website.
In 2017, TMS also held a Materials Photography Contest to support Technical Division Scholarships. To see contest entries, view the album on Flickr
