Our June 21, 2024 meeting will be at AGC facility 5000 Grantswood Road Irondale, AL. Mr. Danny Smith will be our presenter and his topic will be It’s Not Rocket Surgery, It’s Brain Science: Understanding the Complexities of Safety. The meeting will start at the usual 11:30 am time. If you want any information on this meeting email me at or our Secretary Mr. Vincent Scott at

We will not have a July 2024 meeting at AGC. We will combine our meeting with the Northeast Section for their July meeting. Mr. Charley Bishop is the NE Section Chairman. We will help Charley with his first meeting by attending as a chapter. So please try to attend his first meeting which will be at the Honda Facility in Lincoln, AL. There will be a Honda tour after them meeting which should be interesting. More information on this July meeting will be forth coming.
