On July 3, 2015, President Talitha Hampton arrived at the NIST campus in Gaithersburg, MD.
She visited labs of some of the young professionals working there, toured some of the facilities, and met with a diverse group of scientists and engineers to understand their needs as professionals and what they would like to see from NOBCChE as current, former, or potential NOBCChE members. She concluded the visit with a meeting with Dr. Laurie Locascio, Director, Material Measurement Laboratory and Dr. Mary Satterfield, the Chief of Staff in the Material Measurement Laboratory to discuss opportunities to strengthen the partnership between NIST and NOBCChE.
President Hampton says about her NIST visit, "The relationship between NIST and NOBCChE goes back a long time. Now, more than ever we are looking forward to opportunities to share some of the amazing science that is coming out of NIST, highlight the work of diverse professionals who can serve as role models, and expose more of our NOBCChE members to NIST through internships, post-docs, and other professional opportunities. There's definitely more to come!"
