The HUB was buzzing with activity during the show.


cant team effort after a devasting fire at the foundry and began pouring again on schedule. Her PowerPoint is avail- able at www.afsinc.org. Oman, vice president at Haley


& Aldrich (Ann Arbor, Michigan) discussed changing perceptions of the metalcasting industry in his Hoyt Memorial Lecture. Oman provided insights for promoting a positive image of the metalcasting industry. Moore, a CNN commentator and Distinguished Visiting Fellow for the Project for Economic Growth at the Heritage Foundation, briefed the audience on his optimistic view of American industry and the wider U.S. economy. On the show floor, suppliers were


joined by foundries in the Cast in North America area, while confer- ence rooms were filled—sometimes to standing-room-only capacity—for technical presentations, business and


marketing courses, events aimed at students, and more.


Bye Becomes AFS President Bye became the first woman to


serve as president of the American Foundry Society when she officially rose to the position on April 5. For- merly the vice president of the AFS Board of Directors, she succeeds President Patricio Gil, who is CEO of Blackhawk de Mexico (Santa Ca- tarina, Nuevo León, Mexico). Bye has served as an AFS officer since 2016 and was a member of the AFS Directors Class of 2011 to 2015. “I look forward to working with AFS staff and the Board of Direc- tors to continue to propel the society forward in technology, management, and workforce development with industry action,” Bye said. “This is a critical time for the metalcasting industry to pull together and advance


one another into a new era of in- novation.”


Moore “Bullish” on Economy Moore, a senior Trump campaign


adviser and one of the architects of the tax cut bill in late 2017, provided metalcasters with an optimistic outlook for the U.S. economy. “I think we’re looking at the single best outlook for the U.S. economy in 20 years. It hasn’t looked this good in a long time,” Moore said. Moore, a CNN commentator,


delivered a keynote address April 5. He said the Trump recovery is likely to resemble the Reagan recovery, citing factors such as the recent tax reform measures, reduced regulatory burdens and high domestic energy output. “Tat doesn’t mean we won’t see ups


and downs in the market ... but it’s a great time to be in business in America, and I think that’s going to continue.”
