Young Professional Activities

Registration Discount

The AIST Foundation recognizes the importance of young professional member (age 30 and under, no longer students) participation at AISTech.  To help facilitate attendance, the Foundation underwrites half of the registration costs for all young professionals.  A 50% discount on the regular conference registration fee is available.

Young Professionals' Roundtable

All Young Professionals attending AISTech are invited to participate in a roundtable discussion on Sunday afternoon, 6 May, from 4 to 5 p.m. Join your peers in discussing your experience entering the steel industry workforce and challenges that you are facing (or have overcome). Details on the location of the roundtable will be sent to everyone who registers by 1 May 2017. 

Networking Reception

The Foundation feels it is important for young professionals to meet and network with one another at the beginning of the conference week, and is pleased to sponsor a free Happy Hour reception on Sunday evening (6 May at 5:00 p.m.). All young professionals registered for the conference will be sent an invitation.

Free Membership

Young professionals who are new to AIST are eligible for a free year of membership through an AIST Foundation sponsored program.
