Event Description

This event will provide AIST’s Young Professional members the opportunity to learn directly from and network with AIST Board of Directors and AIST Foundation Board of Trustees representatives. The goal of this session is to give our future industry leaders a chance to discover insights and advice from current, respected iron and steel veterans and experts.
Young Professionals will sign up in advance for the virtual event and then be split into small groups. There would be approximately 10 Young Professionals per rotating group to ensure manageable, quality conversation. Registrants will participate in four rotations of virtual breakout rooms to receive exposure and facetime with a variety of board members.
Young Professionals will have the undivided attention of board members and can ask them questions to learn more about their career, industry experience, and insights into how they have earned their success.
Each breakout room discussion will be monitored by a group leader. A backup list of questions has been generated in the event the organic discussion slows down or needs to be redirected.

This event is open to AIST members only, young professionals age 35 and under.
