Save the Date! NFFS is pleased to announce the date and location of the next NFFS Industry Executive Conference, the largest gathering of NFFS members held during the year. The 2020 IEC will be held at Saddlebrook Resort in Wesley Chapel, Florida (30 minutes north of Tampa; see map below) on February 8-10, 2020. Join approximately 100 foundry industry professionals for three days of learning, fellowship, and fun!

In a recent member survey, an overwhelming majority of members supported a shift in timing of the annual NFFS conference from October to February. The change allows our members in northern states to escape the winter cold and runs into fewer potential conflicts with other industry events. (Note that the shift in timing of this event will mean that there will not be a conference that falls in the 2019 calendar year.)

NFFS has secured a competitive room rate of $249 per night at this beautiful venue located on a Florida nature preserve. This rate will be available to attendees for three nights before and after the conference dates for those wishing to extend their stay. For a few highlights of Saddlebrook Resort and the surrounding Tampa area, see the next page.

Don’t forget to practice those golf swings! NFFS will also hold its 23rd annual “Founders’ Classic” Golf Tournament in conjunction with the conference. The tournament will take place at one of Saddlebrook’s two Arnold Palmer championship golf courses.

Stay tuned over the coming weeks for more information about the conference schedule of events, educational speakers, registration, room reservations, travel and more.
