NAFEMS was founded as a special interest group by the UK Government Department for Trade and Industry (DTI) in 1983. From these humble beginnings the organisation has grown into an international association with a worldwide reputation. Many members of our community have been on the journey since the very beginning, but for most, NAFEMS’ origin story in its entirety is not something we are familiar with. For the organisation’s 40th anniversary, the benchmark team has decided to take on this mammoth task and attempt to tell the story of how we got to where we are today. As with any look in the rear-view mirror, we may not have everything right, so if you spot any inaccuracies or omissions, get in touch, and we’ll make sure to set the record straight! So, sit down, get comfy, and get ready to go back. Way back.
