The Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) installed its 2019-2020 board on July 1, 2019. The nine-member board is comprised of both elected and appointed positions, and each board member serves as an officer of the organization. The board’s primary responsibilities will be to build and oversee the 2020 AMUG Conference and architect an organizational structure that will support the ongoing growth of this annual event.

Carl Dekker of Met-L-Flo, who has served two terms as vice president, will take on the role of president. Dekker replaces Paul Bates of UL, who opted not to run for re-election after serving two terms as president, and Bates will assume the role of past president. Andrew Allshorn of At 3D-Squared, who has served as an AMUG global ambassador, was elected for the vice president position that was held by Dekker.

Three incumbents sought re-election and retained their positions. Jamie Cone of BD will serve a third term as vice-president, and Leslie Frost of GE Additive will serve a second term as secretary. In his twenty-sixth term, Thomas Sorovetz of FCA will once again serve as AMUG’s event manager.

AMUG members elected these individuals during the annual conference that was held in Chicago, Illinois. Candidates for the appointed positions of chairman, treasurer and AM industry advisor were proposed and accepted by the elected officers. Filling these positions are Gary Rabinovitz, chairman; Vince Anewenter, treasurer; and Todd Grimm, AM industry advisor.

Carl Dekker expressed gratitude for Mark Barfoot’s years of service. Barfoot, who is stepping down from past president, has served nine consecutive terms in roles that included vice president, president and past president.

The five-day conference will include a two-night exhibitor expo, hands-on workshops, training labs, instructional sessions, technical presentations and an off-site dinner. The 2020 AMUG Conference will be held in Chicago, Illinois, from March 22 -26.
