Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush to Keynote Aluminum Conference
February 9, 2011
The Aluminum Association and the Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC) are co-locating their respective meetings this year at the Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort & Spa on April 7-9, 2011. As part of the event, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush will deliver the keynote speech during the General Session on Saturday, April 9. Also scheduled to address joint sessions of the conference are Hydro Aluminum North America president Matt Dionne; former member of Congress and Deloitte partner Tom Davis; aluminum industry analyst Lloyd O’Carroll; and University of Georgia economics professor Parks Dodd.
“Former Governor Jeb Bush heads an outstanding program sure to give our members insight into policymaker thinking, member company views, and industry trends,” said Steve Demetriou, chairman and chief executive officer of Aleris International Inc., and Aluminum Association chairman.
“The success of our joint sponsorship of ‘Aluminum Week’ last fall encouraged us to co-locate our meetings again,” added Tom Schabel, chief executive officer of Alexandria Extrusion Company and AEC’s chairman. “That partnership has again helped us in putting together this strong joint schedule.”
