Welcome to the Chicago Chapter of the American Foundry Society


Chicago Skyline
We're Erring On the Side of Caution

The health and safety of all AFS Chicago Chapter members is a very high priority. In light of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are cancelling all events and meetings through the end ofMay. While we are challenged and committed to providing such educational and networking opportunities, we believe it's in our Chapter's best interest and regret any inconvenience it may cause.

For members who registered for the AFS Casting Congress in Cleveland, Ohio, the event has been canceled by the national organization. Information is forthcoming on how youcan apply and receive a refund and/or designate a portion of your fees directly to AFS as it works through this unprecedented societal development.


We wish you/yours all the best during this very trying time. If we can be of further assistance, kindly email or call us at the contact information shown below. Stay safe!
