Good afternoon, 

The Central Ohio Chapter is excited to announce that the October meeting will, once again,  be held with the student chapter at The Ohio State University!!! There are many students in this chapter, just getting started, and are very interested in learning from everyone in our chapter. Your participation and knowledge is very important and is needed to keep interest in our industry.  

The meeting is scheduled for Thursday October 20, 2016. The Foundry will be open for tour but due to time restraints our agenda will be as follows… 

·         Meet at the Macquigg Laboratory at 5:30 for the tour. Students and AFS Board Members will be available, on site, to guide you.
·         Dinner will be catered in from City BBQ and will be served in Room 160 around 6:00.
·         The meeting will follow dinner with the student chapter update, Scholarship Program update, FEF Scholarship discussion headed by Wil Tinker and followed by questions from the students. Please feel free to stand up and talk about your company. (not mandatory)
