Davis, manager of analytical chemistry for the Alcoa Technical Center in Alcoa Center, Pa., has been named to the ASTM International board of directors for the term 2009-2011. The 25-person ASTM board has responsibility for directing the affairs of ASTM International, one of the largest developers of international voluntary consensus standards in the world.

Davis, an ASTM International member since 1983, currently serves as chair of Subcommittee E01.22 on Laboratory Quality, a part of Committee E01 on Analytical Chemistry for Metals, Ores and Related Materials. He was chair of the main committee from 2000 to 2005, membership secretary from 1993 to 2000, and chair of Subcommittee E01.23 on Terminology and Editorial from 1990 to 2000. For his technical contributions to E01, Davis received the H.V. Churchill Award in 2006, the Ted Linde Leadership Award in 2004, the John L. Hague Award in 1998 and 1988, and the B.F. Scribner Award in 1994. He is also an ASTM fellow and Award of Merit recipient.

Davis' other ASTM involvement includes work on Committees E11 on Quality and Statistics and F40 on Declarable Substances in Materials. He previously had been a member of Committee B07 on Light Metals and Alloys, and he completed a three-year term on the Committee on Standards in 2006; for the latter work he received a Service Award.

At the Alcoa Technical Center, Davis focuses on analytical chemistry to support Alcoa Research and Development projects, laboratory quality system implementation, and technical management. He is also responsible for technology to enable process characterization and control at Alcoa locations globally, as well as development of certified reference materials for the aluminum industry.

While working on his bachelor's degree in engineering physics at the University of Arkansas in Little Rock, Davis began his career in the Alumina Research Division of Reynolds Metals in Bauxite, Ark. He then became a research scientist at the Reynolds Metals Metallurgy Laboratory in Richmond, Va., and later joined Reynolds Metals Corporate Technology as analytical section head. While there, he completed his master's degree in materials science at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. In 2000, Davis became quality manager at the Alcoa Technical Center, and in 2002 he assumed his current role.

A member of the board of directors for the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation, Davis is a senior member of the American Society for Quality and a member of the American Chemical Society.

ASTM standards are accepted and used in research and development, product testing, quality systems and commercial transactions around the globe.
