Types of Technical Committees

More than 300 technical committees have been formed under the direction of the Technical Coordination Committee (TCC). The TCC serves as the as the administrative and policy-making body of the committees. Within the TCC are five Technology Management Groups (TMGs) that represent a variety of corrosion-related topics:

Technology Management Groups (TMG)

Specific Technology Groups (STG)

What are STGs?

Here’s where you can start making a difference right away.

By joining a Specific Technology Group (STG), you have taken the first step to learning how you can have an impact on shaping standards for your industry. STGs are the voting groups for NACE standards and technical committee reports. Through membership in these committees you can learn about the various standards in progress or under review for revision and vote to make changes.

And it is easy to join the STGs. When you update your NACE member profile page, you can join the STGs in which you wish to participate. You will receive ballot notifications as they become available, and then just choose the ballots in which you wish to participate.

The STGs are the administrative committees in charge of Task Groups (TGs) and Technology Exchange Groups (TEGs). There are 27 STGs divided among the five TMGs.

Section Technology Advisory Group (STAG)

What is a STAG?

Section Technology Advisory Group STAGs associate with TMGs for international committees to become involved locally.

Task Groups (TG)

What are TGs?

Task Groups (TG) are committees that are a community of members who come together to write new or revise existing corrosion-related industry standards and reports. Membership in a TG offers member volunteers the opportunity for a greater level of participation. Task Groups usually have a chair and vice chair who are appointed by the administering STG (Specific Technology Group) chair, and eight to 10 committee members who are recruited by the TG chair and vice chair. The committees usually meet to work on standards and reports during NACE conferences once or twice a year, and also via teleconference calls, Web meetings, and through e-mails. With so many methods available for communicating, members can usually fit meetings into their schedules.

To join a particular task group and work on writing a standard or report, contact the TG chair to express your interest. You can find Task Groups listed under each Specific Technology Group below in the Technical Committee Directory

Technology Exchange Groups (TEG)

What are TEGs?

Technical Exchange Groups are committees that meet during NACE conferences to discuss new technologies, and organize and sponsor symposia at CORROSION. The chair and vice chair are usually appointed by the administering STG (Specific Technology Group) chair. Any NACE member can join a TEG. The symposium paper presentations are scheduled during NACE’s annual CORROSION conference held in the spring each year.

Technical Information Exchange (TIE)

What is a TIE?

Technical Information Exchange (TIE) is a pre-planned forum for the informal exchange of technical information. It may be a part of an STG or TEG meeting, or a stand- alone session.
