You are cordially invited to attend a special presentation by Dr. Said Jahanmir, Assistant Director for Federal Partnerships at The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Said Jahanmir an ASME Past President, Fellow, Lifetime Member and colleague to the Oregon Section, will be discussing the historical and present-day significance of NIST with “A Century of service to the nation and the world through measurements and standards”. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) was founded in 1901 and is now part of the U.S. Department of Commerce. NIST is one of the nation's oldest physical science laboratories. Congress established the agency to remove a major challenge to U.S. industrial competitiveness at the time—a second-rate measurement infrastructure that lagged behind the capabilities of the United Kingdom, Germany, and other economic rivals.
