Before assuming his role at the American Galvanizers Association in 1994, Langill worked as an engineer and a program manager at McDonnell Douglas Corp., St. Louis, Mo.

In addition to ASTM International, Langill is a member of ASM International, NACE International, the American Society of Civil Engineers, the American Welding Society, the Society for Protective Coatings and the Association for Iron and Steel Technology.

A graduate of John Carroll University, University Heights, Ohio, where he received his B.S. and M.S. in physics, Langill earned his Ph.D. in materials science and engineering from Northwestern University, Evanston, Ill.
