MSCI Events Coming Up In December And January

While the coronavirus pandemic has kept industrial metals industry colleagues from meeting in person, the Metals Service Center Institute is working to develop engaging, online contents for its members. These events are all online and can be accessed by members no matter where they are in the world.

Upcoming events include:

  • December 15, 2020, 12 p.m. CT, Free Webinar: MSCI will host a free webinar with Brigadier General (Ret) Maureen LeBoeuf Ed.D., former Director and Head of Physical Education at the United States Military Academy at West Point. LeBoeuf will discuss wellness and keeping physically fit, which is more important than ever for many reasons: fitness helps us to be ready when we’re called upon, and it helps us stay in the game both physically and mentally. It’s a big part of being at our best and is an often overlooked part of being an effective leader. Click here for more information and to register.
