BACKGROUND   The purpose of the meeting is to:

             • Mobilize the metals industry—producers, service centers,
             processors and end users—in advance of the 2012 elections around
             the many issues that threaten the long-term outlook for
             manufacturing and the U.S. economy; and

             • Educate candidates on these issues so that they may better
             understand how their action, or inaction, directly influences our
             industry’s ability to grow, increase jobs and stay competitive.

             The summit will present a unique opportunity for local and
             national industry leaders, employees and policy experts to
             discuss what is needed for a thriving and competitive
             manufacturing sector and to hear candidates’ views on key issues.
