ASNT’s Greater Houston Section Celebrates 50 Years in Service to NDT

5 February 2015

This year, the American Society for Nondestructive Testing recognizes the Greater Houston Section for its fifty years of service to ASNT and the profession of nondestructive testing. The Greater Houston Section, chartered in 1965 for “the purpose of advancing scientific, engineering, and technical knowledge in the field of nondestructive testing”, is currently the largest Local Section of the 92 chartered sections under ASNT with 6,208 affiliated members.

“This is an exciting milestone for our section,” said John Chen, Chair of the Greater Houston Section. “It’s a clear indication that nondestructive testing has a critical role and sustained heritage in Houston, Texas and its surrounding areas.”

The Greater Houston will celebrate their fifty year anniversary at the upcoming International Chemical and Petroleum Industry Inspection Technology (ICPIIT) Conference on 3-6 June 2015 in League City Texas.

ICPIIT, an industry leading inspection conference for NDT professionals in the oil and gas community, is organized jointly by the Greater Houston Section and ASNT. ICPIIT, in its 14th showing, is marked by its successful exchange of best practices, technology adoption, fellowship, and improving quality of NDT within the oil and gas industry. 

Presentations and sponsorships are currently being sought for inclusion in the program. More information about ICPIIT can be found at

The American Society for Nondestructive Testing, headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, is an international technical society with over 15,000 members. ASNT exists to create a safer world by promoting the profession and technologies of nondestructive testing.
