FEF would like to provide all alumni the opportunity to continue to be connected to FEF following graduation all the way through work experience and into retirement - connected to current students as well as alumni, professors, and metalcasting professionals. One way to connect with current students is to volunteer to: present a student webinar, sharing your journey since graduation; host a virtual tour of your company; attend an AFS student chapter as a special speaker. Attending FEF certified and affiliated school open foundry days and nights, receptions and the CIC are ways that you can connect with other alumni and industry professionals, as well as FEF Key Professors.
