Membership in NATAS will put you in touch with new ideas, new techniques, new equipment, and a network of experts. The benefits to membership in our organization are limitless. Membership offers you the opportunity to meet and exchange information with materials scientists from various technical disciplines. You can benefit in several areas:

• Professional Growth:

By being a member of NATAS, you are affiliated with experienced technologists in fields aligned with thermal analysis. You are welcome to attend the National Conference or join one of the various Local Groups, some of which are associated with NATAS. NATAS is also an affiliate of the International Confederation for Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry (ICTAC) and has ASTM connections.

• Career & Educational Opportunities:

NATAS offers an annual Short Course featuring day long sessions on elementary and advanced thermal analysis. In addition, NATAS recently established a Speakers Bureau, which provides members unable to attend the National Conference with the opportunity to hear experts in Materials Science and Thermal Analysis at regional meetings.

Our society recognizes and rewards the technical accomplishments of our members. We currently honor members through several annual awards including the Graduate Research Paper and Student Award, the selection of NATAS Fellows and the prestigious Outstanding Achievement Award. NATAS also acknowledges individual’s contributions through the “Outstanding Service Award.”

Members will have access to new editions of NATAS Notes triennially through the NATAS website. NATAS Notes includes information on meetings and activities nationwide, local sections, international news, employment opportunities, new equipment, and techniques. In addition, those attending the annual conference receive the conference proceedings as part of their “full conference” registration fee.
