Nanotechnologists who work for government agencies may be represented by the American Federation of Government Employees and other unions, which advocate for better pay, benefits, and work conditions. Many professional associations have nanotechnology subgroups and councils. For example, ASME International has a NanoEngineering Council, and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has established a Nanotechnology Council. ABET accredits more than 600 postsecondary engineering technology programs. Some nanotechnologists are members of the American Institute of Physics, Materials Research Society, IEEE, American Chemical Society, ASME International, The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society, and other associations. These organizations provide networking opportunities; continuing education classes; publications; and other resources. Other useful organizations include the International Association of Nanotechnology, Nano Science and Technology Institute, Nanotechnology Industries Association, National Nanotechnology Initiative, and the National Nanofabrication Infrastructure Network.
