The Instrumentation & Measurement Society is committed to building strong local chapters where our members can connect with colleagues in our fields of interest. Chapter formation assistance is available, as we seek to expand our society’s global presence. An annual Chapter Summit, typically held at the I2MTC conference, allows chapter chairs to connect and share ideas and resources. A chapter toolbox gives local chapter leaders direct access to training materials and resources. The future of any organization is in its younger members, and we provide specific programs for students and young professionals to connect and acquaint them with our community.
