A heart-felt “Thank you” and “Congratulations” from NACE staff to all NACE members for the time and expertise you have provided to the organization and corrosion industry during your years of membership and participation in technical committees.

Historical Technical Committee Membership

Technical Activities and Research Staff have an on-going project of awarding years-of-service pins to technical committee members. This is not the NACE membership award. It is the Technical Committee length of service award pin recognizing NACE members for their years of service on technical committees.

If you would like to review your record for accuracy (the number of years that you have been serving on Technical Committees, not your years of NACE membership), please visit the Technical Committee Historical Registration page on the NACE Web site. If the information needs to be updated, you can enter the correct information.

If you haven’t logged on as a NACE member, you will be prompted to do so. Then you will be directed to a page that lists the oldest committee you are a member of and the date you joined the committee. Below that is a field titled "Committee member since," followed by an editable date field. If the date shown in that field is not correct, please enter the correct date. Then, click "Update." You will then see a page that says, "Committee membership records updated successfully."

Many of you may have been technical committee members for a very long time, making it difficult to pinpoint the exact beginning date. In that case, please use your best “guesstimate.” January 1 of the first year you served on a technical committee is acceptable.

Thank you for your time and patience with this endeavor to update our records and recognize members’ service on technical committees.

If you or another NACE member has recently received industry recognition, we’d like to acknowledge you/them in a future issue of the TCC e-Newsletter. Please submit your name or the member’s name you wish to nominate, contact information, and a brief description of the recognition (e.g., published a paper, received an award for excellence …, etc.) to Trudy Schreiner at
