Future Leaders of Metalcasting (FLM)
The AFS Future Leaders in Metalcasting (FLM) is an AFS program designed to assist in continually developing the next generation of leaders. FLM supports and strengthens the network of the next generation of leadership through personal development and outreach. All members must be members of AFS who are on or aspire to be on the management track at their firm. Through two meetings per year, members have access to networking events, executive skills training and community outreach. Given the continuous need for leadership development in our dynamic industry, FLM plays an essential role in the sustainability of the industry.
The Next FLM Meeting is October 16-18, 2017 at General Motors–Defiance Casting Operations, Defiance, Ohio. Click here for more information and to register.
