The American Foundry Society has a three-part mission of advocacy, education and innovation in the $44 billion metalcasting industry. It serves all metalcasting industry producers, suppliers, and end users, including all metals and all processes. The organization traces its roots to 1896 when the American Foundrymen's Association was formed. The Association was subsequently named The American Foundrymen's Society, and later the name was adjusted to the American Foundry Society, or AFS. The society is considered an international organization consisting of 7,500 members across 48 countries, organized into 40 regional chapters and 40 student chapters in the United States, Canada and Mexico. The AFS promotes the interests of the foundry industry to the federal government and consists of a professional staff and volunteer committee structure. The six major areas of focus are: Member Success and Sustainability; Industry Stewardship; Policy Advocacy; Promotion of Castings; Workforce Development; and Technical Innovation. AFS develops and funds research to address metalcasting technical needs. The organization also maintains a Washington DC office and advocates for public policies conducive to a strong metalcasting industry. The AFS Institute, formerly Cast Metals Institute, provides education on metalcasting processes, materials and disciplines, and launched an e-learning initiative on July 1, 2016. AFS is based in Schaumburg, Illinois. Doug Kurkul joined AFS as CEO in January, 2016. More information...
