Help Secure the Forging Industry's Future by Serving on a Board or Nominating Others

FIA and FIERF have been very fortunate through the years that forging industry leaders have stepped up and volunteered to serve on the organizations' respective boards. This altruism has provided guidance and direction, helping FIA and FIERF staff members deliver the services members need.

Now is the time to do your part and help to ensure the forging industry's future is in good hands. FIA's Nominating Committee will meet in January 2016 to select a slate of nominees for the FIA Board of Directors and FIERF Board of Trustees. These nominees will then be voted on at the FIA Annual Meeting of Members in May.

To find out about serving on either board, or to nominate a candidate, contact Roy W. Hardy, FIA president, at [email protected]. Candidates from FIA forging and supplier member organizations are eligible. Those elected will serve three-year terms ending during the 2019 Annual Meeting of Members.

The FIA Board of Directors provides operating policy and direction in support of FIA's purpose and mission to improve members' global competitiveness. FIA activities are accomplished by committee, staff and member groups through defined, measurable objectives relating to industry marketing, information, public policy and technology matters relevant to the forging industry and of interest to FIA members. Director candidates are CEO or senior managers who are well-versed in business operations and strategic planning, motivated to participate and lead in industry-representative peer group efforts, and able/willing to commit to four meeting days per year.

The FIERF Board of Trustees sets direction for and participates in small working groups to plan and implement highly focused activities relating to technology, education and fundraising matters to further the competitiveness of the forging industry. Trustee candidates should be well-versed in either business or technical planning skills, interested in developing long-term programs and solutions for industry challenges, and able/willing to commit to four meeting days per year.
