AIST Celebration of the AIME 150th Anniversary ~ 2021
AIME has granted funds to its Member Societies to support customized celebrations of AIME’s 150th at their annual conferences beginning October 2020 through 2022 due to the pandemic. These will include special keynote speakers, cake and champagne toasts, and commemorative gifts. Some will also use a 150th video created by SPE and History Walk pop-up banners created by SME and TMS.
Specifically, AIST will include a special article in its May 2021 issue of Iron & Steel Technology, highlighting the history of the organizations. There will also be an AIME Pavilion at AISTech in Nashville, TN from June 27-July 1, 2021 where attendees can learn about the organizations' legacy and view snippets from the latest oral history captures of prominent members.
Thank you to 2020 Honorary Member from AIST, Glenn Pushis, who recognized AIME’s 150th Anniversary during the virtual award presentation (starting at timestamp 37:00).
