TMS 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, TMS published an article on the organizations’ legacies in its March 2021 issue of JOM. They also launched an Our History webpage and hosted anniversary trivia during their virtual conference in March 2021.
TMS will continue the celebration during the TMS 2022 Annual Meeting & Exhibition, February 27-March 3, 2021, in Anaheim, California, USA.
