About the Meeting

The Globe-Trotters Member Chapter annual meeting is unique in that it has more than 60 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 to quality and production. After lunch, the suppliers are invited to join the group for a question-and-answer session followed by an open discussion. The technical exchange continues on Monday and Tuesday with presentations from producer members. This is the perfect opportunity to hear about the latest projects and technology advancements happening inside steel mills. Tuesday evening the chapter holds its annual fellowship dinner, which will include recognition of the chapter’s scholarship winners, best papers of the day and a keynote from Barry Schneider, senior vice president, flat roll steel group, Steel Dynamics, Inc. Attendees will also have the opportunity to tour Steel Dynamics Inc. - Flat Roll Group SouthWest-Sinton Division and participate in the chapter's annual golf outing (separate registration is required).

Who Should Attend

Meltshop personnel who would benefit from attending the meeting include: leads, operators, metallurgist/process engineers, maintenance personnel, refractory personnel, safety personnel, supervisors and managers.
