NACMA 2013

NACMA continues its informative Workshop and Conference series returning to the USA for the 2013 session. This year we have designed the agenda to be an integrated coordinate metrology training program to provide the attendee with a world-class understanding of coordinate metrology. The National Institute of Standards and Technology has been chosen as the location for this Workshop and Conference which will be held August 27-30 in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

The NACMA @ NIST Workshop and Conference is designed for all metrology, design, and management professionals covering topics ranging from GD&T intent and implementation, to best practice for CMM measurements, to discussion on the future direction within our metrology industry.

Combining speakers from government, university, and private sector industry with Sponsors supporting the Metrology Industry makes this an important stop along your professional path. Past conferences have sold out and availability is on a first come basis.

The conference fee includes the Tuesday evening reception, refreshments at all breaks, and lunches on Wednesday and Thursday.

An informative newsletter updating the developments regarding the NACMA @ NIST conference will be sent to registered professionals. If you wish to be included in the newsletter distribution, please see our home page at
