ASNT 75th Anniversary Celebration

ASNT: 75 Years of Success in Creating a Safer World

75th Anniversary

The coming year is an exciting one for the American Society for Nondestructive Testing: we're celebrating our 75th anniversary! Since 1941, ASNT has been a technical society dedicated to the certification and support of professionals in the nondestructive testing industry who work daily to ensure safety worldwide.

How We're Celebrating

We're preparing for this milestone by working with members past and present, scouring our archives of Materials Evaluation and other publications, and discovering artifacts that tell ASNT's story. This work will culminate in several tangible pieces including artwork, a history book, and various articles and features.

2016 ASNT Annual Conference

On 24-27 October 2016, the NDT world will come together for the 2016 ASNT Annual Conference! This is a special event, as it marks the 75th Annual Conference in the Society's history. At this year's annual conference, we will be having special presentations and artifacts on display, as well as memorabilia recognizing this important milestone.

75th Anniversary Celebration on the Queen Mary

On Wednesday night of the Annual Conference, we'll be hosting a huge party aboard the Queen Mary, a legendary ocean liner constructed in 1930. We invite you to eat, drink, and be merry with your colleagues aboard this historic vessel to celebrate ASNT's continued success in creating a safer world.

Commemorative 3-D Art Piece

To recognize our extensive and illustrious history, we're teaming up with One of a Kind Art Studio to craft a large, three dimensional art piece with artifacts and images that tell the Society's story. This exceptional piece will be unveiled at the Annual Conference and kept for permanent display at the International Service Center.
