The Colorado and New Hampshire-based Analytical Reference Materials International (ARMI), a metallurgical reference materials organization, holds an annual technical conference to review current issues in the field. The audience includes industry representatives from organizations such as Alcoa, ATI, and Brammer, and also accreditation bodies and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. ANAB was very involved in the August 2014 conference in Vail, CO. ARMI is now working with ANAB to attain ISO Guide 34 accreditation.
