Globe-Trotters Member Chapter Annual Meeting
27–30 August 2016 • Myrtle Beach Marriott Resort & Spa at Grande Dunes • Myrtle Beach, SC, USA
Host Mill: Nucor Steel-South Carolina
About the Meeting
The Globe-Trotters Member Chapter annual meeting is unique in that it has more than 50 years of history behind it. To kick off the meeting, the producers only roundtable discussion is perhaps the most valuable portion of the event. Here, producers are separated into meltshop and rolling mill groups, and various topics are discussed from safety, quality and production. After lunch, the suppliers are invited to the group, which includes a question-and-answer session from the roundtable discussion, followed by an open discussion. On Monday morning, attendees will depart for Nucor Steel-South Carolina and then the golf outing (separate registration is required). On Tuesday, the technical exchange continues with technical papers presented by producer members. This is the perfect opportunity to hear about the latest projects and updates on what is happening inside steel mills. Tuesday night concludes with a fellowship dinner, which will include the chapter’s scholarship winners, best papers of the day and a keynote speaker.
