Additive Manufacturing Users Group Announces New Board

The Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) recently announced its 2018-19 board. Elected by AMUG members during the annual business meeting held at the 2018 AMUG Conference in St. Louis, Missouri, the board’s primary responsibility will be to build and oversee the 2019 conference (Chicago, March 31-April 4). 

AMUG is an organization that educates and advances the uses and applications of additive manufacturing technologies. AMUG members include those with industrial additive manufacturing/3D printing technologies used for professional purposes from companies such as GE Additive, SLM Solutions, Renishaw, 3D Systems, EOS and DSM Additive Manufacturing, among others. 

From the slate of candidates, AMUG members voted in favor of subsequent terms for candidates seeking re-election. Paul Bates, who is manager of UL’s Additive Manufacturing Competency Center, was re-elected as the group’s president. Bates, who has six years of AMUG service, has previously held the positions of deputy vice president and vice president.

Recognizing Bate’s second term, members supported continuation of Mark Barfoot’s (Cimetrix Solutions) position as past president. In the role of vice president, AMUG members re-elected Jamie Cone of BD and Carl Dekker of Met-L-Flo. Tom Sorovetz of FCA was re-elected to the position of event manager.

Secretary Kim Killoran opted to step down after filling this position for five years. To replace her, members elected Leslie Frost of GE Additive. 

Additive Manufacturing is the theme of the OMTEC® 2018 Tech Center, sponsored by GE Additive.
