ASNT Establishes New Region to Serve Canada

17 June 2015

The American Society for Nondestructive Testing, Inc. (ASNT) has established a new region, Region 20, in Canada. Each chartered ASNT section is geographically assigned to a region and each region has a Regional Director.

“The creation of Region 20 is a positive step forward in providing greater support to ASNT members in Canada,” said Heather Cowles, ASNT Senior Manager of Member Relations and Services. “Organizing and developing new regions internationally is a key priority to serve our members and will continue in the coming years.”

Cindy Finley, a longtime ASNT member and Ontario resident, has been named as the Regional Director of Region 20.

Responsibilities of a Regional Director are to provide a channel of communication for prospective section leaders in potential new sections, monitor the status of already active sections’ activities, guide section leaders in section operations and management and represent sections in Section Operations Council matters.  Regional Directors also coordinate and host section leadership training periodically. 

A complete list of regions, sections, and Regional Directors can be found online at www.asnt.org/regionaldirectors.

The American Society for Nondestructive Testing, based in Columbus, Ohio, is an international technical society with over 15,000 members that provides a forum for exchange of NDT technical information; NDT educational materials and programs; and standards and services for the qualification and certification of NDT personnel.
 
ASNT exists to create a safer world by promoting the profession and technologies of nondestructive testing.
