ASM International (ASM), the Materials Information Society, will commemorate its 100th anniversary with a celebratory gala from 5:30-9 p.m. on Oct. 27 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The anniversary gala will be held during the Society's annual Materials Science & Technology Summit (MS&T), also in Montreal.
The Society, recognized for its ASM Handbook series, technical journals, conferences as well as other educational offerings, has a legacy of publishing high-quality materials content by and for the member community. Founded in 1913, the organization began as the Steel Treaters Club in Detroit, Michigan, with fewer than 20 members. Today, ASM International is a thriving society with more than 30,000 members and nearly 100 worldwide chapters.
ASM International's headquarters, complete with its acclaimed geodesic dome, is located in Materials Park, Ohio.
"ASM International has been serving the materials community for over 100 years now….because of and through our members, countless contributions have been made to industry, government, academia and the general public," said Thom Passek, Managing Director of ASM International. "We can't wait to reminisce about the organization and celebrate its future with our lifelong society friends this October."

The anniversary gala will feature a nostalgic review of ASM's impressive past and a look toward the future during the cocktail reception, dinner, historical tributes and live entertainment. The gala will also feature a keynote speech by Dr. Peter Diamandis, chairman and CEO of the X Prize Foundation and the New York Times Bestselling author of Abundance - The Future is Better Than You Think.
