The goal of this article is to give an overview of the foundation and development of Croatian Metallurgical Society (CMS) from the Society of Engineers and Technicians of Steelworks Sisak 1952 – 2012 With monitoring of goals and tasks of CMS, the main activities of the Society are also set out: publishing of the magazine Metalurgija, the international symposium „Materials and Metallurgy“, and productive cooperation with an array of institutions in Croatia and abroad but also difficulties in the activities (over 70 institutions from 50th countries). The overview includes also several futile press notices to the public made by the member of the Society of their own initiative, in order to sustain and revitalize the Croatian metallurgy. The Society and the Journal survive on the basis of modest financial support by the Ministry of Science and Education and Sport (in 2020 y only for Metalurgija Journal 10 000 EUR and approx. 3 000 EUR for activities of Society), of Participation Fees from Symposium and exclusively to voluntary work all in Society, without any permanent employees.
