Held at the J.W. Marriott in Palm Desert, this four day event brought together the senior executives from all the major firms in the aluminum industry. All the various committee members were present and the first two days were dedicated to official committee business and the AEC’s annual Board Meeting.
The final two days consisted of a full program with several knowledgeable speakers addressing various topics in detail from the outlook and trends for the coming twelve months to a very interesting and comprehensive summary of current status from Robert DeFrancesco who heads AEC’s legal team.
