Aluminum Industry Announces Aluminum Week

Date: Monday, October 15, 2012 - Thursday, October 18, 2012

Location: Chicago , IL

Three major trade associations representing the aluminum industry will host Aluminum Week this October in Chicago. The Aluminum Association (AA,) Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC) and Aluminum Anodizers Council (AAC) will co-locate their meetings to increase cooperation and communication among different sectors of the industry.


The combined program will include The Aluminum Association’s Annual Meeting, the AEC Extrusion Symposium, and the AAC International Anodizing Conference & Exposition.

“Co-location with our partner organizations provides value back to our members,” said Heidi B. Brock, President of The Aluminum Association. “Leaders can assess the state of the U.S. aluminum industry and determine how best to maximize Association resources and cooperation to support industry growth.”

“For the past two years, the Aluminum Association and Aluminum Extruders Council have worked together on Aluminum Week,” said Aluminum Extruders Council President, Rand A. Baldwin, CAE. “The addition of the Aluminum Anodizers Council to Aluminum Week is a great enhancement to the event for the industry.”

Aluminum Week will be held October 15-18, 2012 at the Renaissance Chicago Downtown hotel located at 1 West Wacker Drive.

“Bringing together the three most prominent trade associations covering the aluminum industry is an exciting development and opportunity for AAC members,” said Aluminum Anodizers Council President, Gregory T. Rajsky, CAE, adding, “Chicago offers the perfect venue for Aluminum Week.”

The Aluminum Week program of events will include meetings of the three trade associations’ committees and working groups, as well as educational content and networking functions. Registration will be open this summer.
