TMS 2009 Annual Meeting & Exhibition Features Leaders from the Aluminum Industry

Issues related to the economy, energy, and sustainability will be discussed by aluminum industry leaders during a special program of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS) 138th Annual Meeting & Exhibition. The 2009 Aluminum Plenary Session will be presented at the TMS 2009 Annual Meeting & Exhibition (February 15–19, 2009) in San Francisco, California.

An outstanding panel of speakers has been organized to review the current economic situation with a comparison to the past and recessions in the metals industry.

The session will consider issues related to the growth of aluminum production, communicate the vision for corporate social responsibility, and reinforce the positive contributions of the aluminum industry to value creation for society.

TMS is extremely pleased to welcome the following speakers to the TMS 2009 Annual Meeting & Exhibition:

• Dave Persampieri, vice president, Charles River Associates, “What Now for Aluminum? The Current Crisis in Perspective and Observations on the Future”

• Dick Evans, chief executive officer, Rio Tinto Alcan, “Aluminum: Four Decades Looking Back and One Decade Looking Forward”

• Jan Arve Haugan, senior vice president of Technology and Part Owned Smelters, Hydro, “Hydro’s Agenda 2010: Technology Focus while Navigating in the Storm”

• Bill O’Rourke, vice president of Sustainability & EHS, Alcoa, “Alcoa’s Sustainability Journey”

The Aluminum Plenary Session will take place in room 2001/2003 on the second floor of the Moscone West Convention Center, Monday, February 15, 2009, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:10 p.m.
