Deputy Secretary General:
The Nonferrous Metals Society of China (NFsoc) founded in Dec 1984 is the nationwide leading professional body of scholars, scientists and engineers mostly engaged or interested in the broad field of nonferrous metals and its related professions. The society is closely affiliated with the Chinese Association for Science and Technology.
MISSION / ACTIVIYIES
The society is a nonprofit public organization devoting itself to the cause of promoting the science and engineering professions concerned with all areas of the nonferrous metals industry
To realize this primary aim, the activities of the society are centered on the following aspects:
l Conducting scientific and technological conferences
l Publishing books and periodicals
l Supporting research and development activities
l Providing continuing services
l Offering continuing education programs
l Representing demands and interests of members
To broaden our field of activities and also to keep abreast with the latest development and issues in our profession, coopration is sought and maintained with international societies and / or professional bodies in such matters as co-sponsorship of international conferences, joint conferences, exchange of publication & information and mutual visits of prominent figures of each society
With now close contact and cooperation have been well established between NFsoc and the following well known societies / professional bodies:
l Associacao Brasileira de Metals (ABM)
l Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (AusIMM)
l Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy & Petroleum (CIM)
l Gesellschaft Deutscher Metallhutten and Bergleute (GDMB)
l Institute of Mining & Metallurgy(IMM)
l Institute of Materials (IOM)
l Korean Institute of Metals (KIM)
l Korean Institute of Resources Recycling (KIR)
l Mining & Materials Processing Institute of Japan (MMIJ)
l Société Fransaise de Métalluegie et de Matériaux (SF2M）
l Society of Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration (SME)
l The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS)
l Verein Deutscher Eisenhuttenleute (VDEH),etc
l The Indian Institute of Metal
Being an industry-oriented professional body, NFsoc frequently sets up temporary committees for study and investigation of current important industrial problems and issues furthermore short training courses/seminars and continuing educational programs are organizized for the need of the nonferrous metals industry
Through its technical division committees and regional branches NFsoc always strives to combine and integrate in a comprehensive sense the works and efforts of its scientists coming from different sectors of society such as from industry, university and government with the sole purpose of making great contributions to the nonferrous metals industry.
Every five years a nationwide general meeting will be held by representative of NFsoc members for the election of its new council.
The new council is entrusted to discuss the nomination and election of standing members of council, president and vice–presidents, and also the secretary general of NFsoc (equivalent to executive director).
23 Technical Committees:
l Mineral Processing

2 Working Committees
There is a committee for young scientists and engineers.
15 Local Branch Societies:
There are two kinds of memberships, individual member and corporate member. Up to 2005, more than 39,000 members of NFsoc have been registered.
All members should meet the qualifications equivalent to or above the level of an experienced college degree engineer working in the broad field of nonferrous metals and its allied industries and professions.
On the one hand the prestige and status of NFsoc are essentially based on the magnificent knowledge and creative expertise of its membership, but on the other hand NFsoc offers its member a splendid forum for contact at home and abroad with prominent figures in science and engineering relating to the nonferrous metals and its allied professions. It also means crossfertilization of new ideas and innovative approaches so essential for the young engineer and scientist.
NFsoc has established a nationwide network in nonferrous metals community linking related industries, research institutes, universities and government–affiliated organizations, among which up to 2005, 194 enterprises have been accepted as corporate members.
There are three major quarterlies published by NFsoc:
“Transactions of the Nonferrous Metals Society of China” with Chinese and English versions,
“Nonferrous Metals” in Chinese with English abstracts,
“Rare Metals” in English.
A series of Proceedings of International Conferences held in China and organized solely or jointly by NFsoc with genuine co-sponsorship of various world-known societies/institutes have been published.
