First and foremost, I extend my warm wishes to everyone for a happy and energetic New Year as we embark on new and exciting goals. I would like to provide a brief overview of our association's past achievements and upcoming activities.

Our society takes pride in having successfully organized 80 technical events, addressing various topics in the field of NDT. These events were conducted both virtually and in person, attracting 500 to 800 unique members online. Notably, the section has been consistently recognized with ASNT's President Award since its inception, achieving the highest Platinum award last year. In 2023, ASNT established a new training and certification facility in Chennai to better serve members in Asia. Our major annual conference, ICENDE-2023, spanned three days as a physical event, drawing 500 professionals in diverse categories such as delegates, invited speakers, presenters, exhibitors, and visitors.

With immense pleasure, I invite you all to participate in the 4th International Conference & Exhibition on Nondestructive Evaluation - ICENDE 2024, under the patronage of the American Society of Non-destructive Testing India Section jointly with ASNT India. The conference is scheduled for August 22-24, 2024, at Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad.

ICENDE 2024 offers a prime opportunity for regional and international operators, owners, along with technology, product, and service providers to come together, foster connections, and engage in discussions focused on developing innovative ideas and practical solutions. These conversations aim to address the increasing needs of the oil, gas, and petrochemical industries, aerospace, and defence. The cutting-edge technologies in Nondestructive Testing, Automation and Sustainability will be unveiled and discussed, paving the way for efficient operations, enhanced safety and reduced environmental impact. Join us as we collaboratively tackle industry challenges.

I extend my heartfelt wishes for the conference's grand success and eagerly anticipate welcoming all of you at ICENDE 2024.
