Ultrasonics Standing Committee Members

UFFC-S has Technical Standing Committees in Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control. The Vice Presidents in each field appoint and chair the committee. The committees promote the Society, develop relevant standards, and organize workshops, tutorials, awards, and publications. The committees also select their symposia’s General Chairs, and propose to the AdCom symposium schedules, locations, and budgets.  Details are here [link to Bylaws 5.1.1 page].
