Jim Frost, director of Quality Systems and Compliance at AMERICAN Cast Iron Pipe Company, was elected to the American Foundry Society (AFS) Executive Committee. The elections took place in late April at the organization’s annual business meeting, which was held in conjunction with the 2019 CastExpo and Metal Casting Congress in Atlanta, Georgia.
Frost’s four-year term will be highlighted in 2021 when he becomes AFS National President. AFS is a professional organization with more than 6,000 individual and 900 corporate members serving the metal casting industry. Its mission is to advocate, educate and innovate to and for its stakeholders, policy makers and the general population. AMERICAN has been a corporate member of AFS for more than 60 years. Many AMERICAN employees, both past and present, participate in its numerous functions and committees.
Frost has been an active member of AFS for more than 30 years, going back to his college career. He has held numerous positions on the local, regional and national levels of the organization. “AFS has been instrumental in my professional development,” Frost said. “Serving in this capacity is one way I can pay it forward for future generations. I appreciate the support from AMERICAN and AFS, and working with the metal casting industry in this capacity.”
