It is my pleasure to welcome you to  ...   harvesting, and actuation, to name a few examples.. Leading edge composite materials and innovative approaches for manufacturing, characterizing, modeling, and implementing them continue to be core strengths of the society.. The main forum for the society s communication mission is the Annual Technical Conference that is typically held in the months of September or October of each year.. ASC conferences are world-renowned for their high technical quality.. The technical divisions of the society, currently focused on Analysis Testing, Durability Damage Tolerance, Emerging Composites Technologies, and Design Manufacturing, provide further networking opportunities among colleagues in composites.. Interested persons are encouraged to contact the division chairs and get involved.. ASC also sponsors four journals:.. J.. Composite Materials, J.. Reinforced Plastics Composites, J.. Thermoplastic Composites, and J.. Sandwich Structures Materials.. Finally, our website contains upcoming conferences, key society contacts, information on joining ASC, award and scholarship opportunities, operating rules, links for job opportunities, university research centers, and businesses, and archival information on past ASC conferences, proceedings, and award winners.. As you browse our website to learn about ASC, feel free to contact us if you have questions, comments, or would like to become more involved in our activities.. Sincerely,.. Charles E.. Bakis..
