Currents is the Society’s monthly digital newsletter, focusing on Society-wide and industry news and events, business announcements and information, scientific briefs and articles, and member news.

View current and archived issues  (MTS members only)


MTS would like to amplify the work of our sections, committees, and members! Send us your business, science and technology, section and professional committee news and photos to include in future Currents issues. Examples include meetings, speakers, site visits, community involvement, competitions, etc. Email directly to [email protected]


Do not be concerned about the length of an article – it is more important to include all the details. If the article is too long or too detailed, the editor will review, make any edits and return to the submitter for review.

  • Please be sure to include the basic who, what, when, where and why of the event.
  • Include any names and titles of speakers, site visit coordinators, etc. Please be sure they are correctly spelled, as the editor will have minimal opportunity to verify.
  • Quotes are always helpful. Please be sure to identify the speaker and their position/organization. 
  • Let us know if there are any upcoming events you would like to publicize in Currents


Take photos of your events. Even if we don’t run a story, we might run the photo with a long caption. Photos should be high-resolution, 300 dpi resolution. Please do not ‘save down’ your images or crop before emailing — send them in the original file format.

Please send all news and photos to [email protected].


Submissions to Currents are due the second Friday of every month prior the upcoming issue. For example, placements in the February issue would be due by the second Friday of February.
