January 18-19, NADCA is excited to announce the first ever California Congress at the Hilton Long Beach. The Congress will feature technology highlights of our Congress in Columbus earlier this fall. It is important to use that all our members are able to access this information prevalent to the advancement in the industry. The event will kick off with a cocktail reception on January 18 and lead into a full day of presentations on January 19. The Congress will be sponsored by a limited number of Suppliers that attendees will be able to meet with to learn more about products and services available to the die casting industry. The cost is just $20 for NADCA Members and $50 for Non-Members*. Contact Melisa Ryzner if you are sending more than 5 people to receive discounted pricing.
