In light of COVID-19 and ongoing safety concerns for members and staff, ASTM International announced the November and December Committee Week meetings in Atlanta are now transitioning to a virtual platform.

These decisions were based on several factors, including: Input from members whose organizations are concerned with travel; most participating committees opting to meet virtually; specific information on the high number of cases and hospitalizations in Atlanta and continued review of information and recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization and other governmental bodies

ASTM International staff will be contacting committee leaders to plan for virtual meetings or other alternatives for conducting committee business. Decisions about upcoming independent meetings will be made by the respective executive subcommittees working with ASTM headquarters, according to a press release.
