Short information about Cryogenic Society of America

Purpose - Objectives

The purpose and objectives of the Cryogenic Society of America are to:


CSA was formed in 1964 and derived most of its initial members from the aerospace industry. However, the membership is now diversified to include engineers, physicists, other scientists, sales representatives, technicians, all levels of management, systems designers and operators and a host of other occupations... with a wide range of academic degrees and from more than 12 countries. In 1971, the Helium Society was incorporated into CSA.
