Calabrese has been active in the AIChE throughout his professional career, particularly within its North American Mixing Forum (NAMF). He is currently an Emeritus member of NAMF’s Executive Council, and has previously served as immediate Past President, President, Vice President, Treasurer and National Program Chair.
