"The AFS Wisconsin Chapter is dedicated to serving its membership through educational, professional, and social activities designed to strengthen and promote the local metalcasting industry today and for the future."

It is with great sadness we inform you of the passing of Harold T. Hoak. Harold was a Past President of the Wisconsin Chapter (1984-1985) and a longtime mentor to many Wisconsin Chapter Officers and Directors.

Harold continued to offer his support to the Chapter through active participation, into this Chapter year, on the Membership Committee and regular attendance to Chapter Monthly Meetings and Board Meetings, offering advice and valuable historical perspective and running Chapter business. Harold will truly be missed.
