“You better start swimmin’ or you’ll sink like a stone for the times they are a changin’” (Bob Dylan, 1964).
In May I had the honor of delivering the opening remarks to the 2011 Metal Casters Alliance Government Affairs Conference in Washington DC. This year, as in years before, it was a joint conference between NADCA and the American Foundry Society. AS NADCA Chairman, I set the stage for the conference and gave a brief overview of what to expect for the attendees of over 105 metal casters from around the country. Here are a few pertinent excerpts from my presentation regarding the metal casting industry and the conference on May 4th, 2011 at the JW Marriot in Washington, DC.
