    1) "Who needs calibrations anyway?"
    Greg Strouse, Leader of NIST's Temperature and Humidity Group, will explore examples of how NIST measurement services are evolving to meet the needs of the ever-changing manufacturing landscape.
    2) "Metrology and the Consequences of Bad Measurement Decisions"
    Scott Mimbs, former leader of NASA's Metrology and Calibration Program, will demonstrate the influence of metrology throughout the phases of product development and will illustrates the negative consequences when one or more of metrology's elements fail.
    3) "An Uncertainty Analysis of Fluke Calibration Fused-Quartz Bourdon Tube Pressure Products"
    Joshua Biggar, Metrologist at Fluke Calibration, will explain the unique facets of Quartz Bourdon Tube technology, basis of operation and available uncertainty classes.

    The meeting will conclude with the tour of Laboratory Testing Inc., including the 30-year-old company's materials testing, nondestructive testing and calibration labs. Register here to attend the meeting and tour LTI.

    NSCL International was formed in 1961 to help measurement laboratories work together to solve their common problems. Today, the organization has over 1000 members around the world representing a variety of industries. Its mission is to invest in the advancement of measurement science, promote education and skill development, provide tools and resources to enhance member processes and drive technical integrity in documentary standards programming and education.
