From the Desk of the Chapter Chairman
On behalf of the Officers and Board of Directors, I would like to welcome everyone back for the 2017-2018 Birmingham Chapter year. The directors and Committee Chairmen have already been diligently working on plans for this year.
We have been thinking of new ways to best serve our membership and will start the year off with a technical session on 3D printing technology and simulation software on August 25th at UAB. The technical session will be followed by a reception at the Doubletree in Birmingham. The Ben Dunning Picnic and Golf outing will be held the next morning at Oxmoor Valley which is part of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Please register as soon as possible because there are a maximum number of golfers that will be allowed.
We will be traveling to many different locations within our area this year and plan to have more technical sessions along with our regular meetings. If there is any particular topic that you are interested in, please contact a member of the chapter education committee.
We are also excited to host the AFS Southeastern Regional at Point Clear, AL in March. Please book your rooms soon in preparation for that.
A special thanks to all our financial contributors. Without you we could not sponsor Foundry in a Box, college chapter support, educational opportunities, college scholarships, etc..
