Packard to Speak at AWMI Dinner in Kentucky

Written by John Packard

SMU President & CEO John Packard will be the featured speaker at the AWMI Industry Dinner at the Carnegie Hall at Newport in Newport, Ky., on Oct. 18. The event is open to the public.

AWMIThe mission of the Association of Women in the Metal Industries (AWMI) is to educate, network and mentor those in the metals industries. They encourage anyone interested to attend, including college students. This is an organization that needs to be supported and encouraged to grow.

We understand that one domestic steel mill has already booked two tables (sounds like a challenge to the other mills…) in a room capable of holding 150 people.

Packard said he is going to try to be a bit creative using the 60 minutes he has to discuss the Section 232 tariffs, the purchase of SMU by CRU, a little history about the industry he has been involved with for the past 41 years, and other interesting tidbits about current market conditions.
