Government Affairs Committee    

The Government Affairs Committee contributes to the development of governmental science and technology policy in materials-related areas by responding to and initiating opportunities to interact nationally and internationally with government officials and public and private organizations on matters of science and technology policy. The committee serves as a resource for reliable, unbiased technical and professional information; stimulates responsible technical discussion and facilitates the exchange of information between policy makers, materials scientists, engineers and the public; and participates in or plans events related to those policies.
