- Government Affairs Committee 2011-2012
The Non-Ferrous Founders' Society was formed in 1943 for the expressed purpose of representing the industry's concerns to government agencies. The NFFS Government advocacy program is structured to achieve three specific goals 1) To identify regulations and legislation having the potential to impact non-ferrous foundries prior to their enactment in order to influence their passage or, at the very least, to minimize any adverse impact or effect upon the non-ferrous metalcasting industry. 2) To interpret the effect of enacted or expanded laws and regulations on non-ferrous foundries, and to assist Society members in bringing their processes and practices into compliance; and 3) To establish mechanisms to express the industry's concerns and recommendations on pending legislation and regulations, and to inform legislators and regulatory agencies both of the important role that castings and non-ferrous foundries play in American Industry and in the economy and of the potential economic impact that proposed regulations and legislation could have on the industry.
- NFFS Executive Committee
