Metalcasters and industry suppliers from across the country will gather on Capitol Hill the week of June 19-23, 2023, for AFS Metalcasters Week in Washington, D.C. The week, which coincides with the annual AFS Government Affairs Fly-In on June 20-21, is dedicated to advocating for U.S. metalcasters, who will meet with approximately 100 Senate and House offices.

"AFS Metalcasters Week in D.C. is a unique opportunity for our industry to come together and speak with one voice on issues that affect us all," said Doug Kurkul, CEO of AFS. "We look forward to engaging with policymakers and advancing policies that promote the competitiveness of the U.S. metalcasting industry."
