The AFS Twin Cities Chapter Annual Business Meeting will be Tuesday, May 10th, beginning with a social at 5:00pm at the Twin Cities Tavern, 1330 Industrial Boulevard NE, Minneapolis, MN 55413. Our guest speaker will be Mike Lenahan from Badger Mining Corporation who will talk about “AFS Today – Where we are and where we are heading.”

About the Speaker:

Mike Lenahan joined Badger Mining in 2021 to further bolster its foundry business and lead its non-foundry industrial business development.

Since 1987, Mike has been active in the foundry industry. He has held several key leadership and business development positions over his career including Vice President – Industrial Sales at Covia, and most recently, CEO and co-owner of KB Foundry Services, where he continues to serve as a board member and adviser.

Mike is the Immediate Past President of the American Foundry Society, where he is served an atypical two-year term.  Mike is a member and past chair for both the AFS EHS Division and Government Affairs Committees.  He has been a chapter president for two AFS Chapters over the course of his career.  Mike is past president of the Foundry Association of Michigan and current member of the Ohio Cast Metals Board of Directors.

Mike holds an undergraduate degree in Applied Science from Bowling Green State University and a MBA from the University of Notre Dame. In his spare time he loves to fish and shoot sporting clays.  He also is an avid collector of bourbon. He and his wife Pam have two daughters, one son-in-law, and one trying to work his way into the family.  They also have a very spoiled Rottweiler named Annabelle.

About the Topic:

Mike will provide an update on the state of AFS and what lies ahead for the industry as we continue to emerge from the pandemic. He will also share his thoughts on how to navigate  turbulent situations through clarity of mission, transparency, and teamwork. All are encouraged to attend, including students with an interest in the metal casting industry.
