Future Leaders Meeting

Please mark your calendars for the next Future Leaders meeting on March 21-22 at CastExpo (http://www.castexpo.com/Home.asp). This F.L. event will take advantage of the opportunity for many people to attend both a group meeting and the industry's biggest trade show. Since show years do not occur annually, it will be an opportunity to see equipment, suppliers, etc. Also, AFS with SFSA have put together the standard steel program plus an opportunity to get some basics. We will also have a breakout room from 1:00P - 3:00P on Sunday for our standard roundtable discussion and maybe a guest speaker.

If you are interested in attending, please RSVP so we have a head count and know who to look for. I should note that all arrangements for CastExpo will need to be made separately and registration for CastExpo events will need to be setup if you plan to attend any of their functions.
