The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) today announced that nominations are open for its Executive Committee, including for the position of Vice Chair. Nominees must be members of the CMS.

Founded in 1984, the CMS is a large membership of users, service providers, and OEM manufacturers of close tolerance, industrial coordinate measurement technology. These metrology systems include inspection software, traditional CMMs, theodolites, GPS, laser projection systems, laser trackers, laser radar, photogrammetry/videogrammetry systems, scanning devices, and articulating arms.
