The Boy Scouts of America has postponed its annual Metals Industry Boy Scout Dinner in Chicago to May 19, 2022. The 50th annual dinner was originally scheduled for November 4 in Chicago. Brad Serlin, president of United Scrap Metal, Cicero, Ill., is to be chairman of the event.
The dinner is an annual recognition and celebration of the Boy Scouts’ relationship with the metals industry. “This event is considered the most important metals industry social gathering in North America,” said Myriam Herrera, development director Boy Scouts of America, Pathway to Adventure Council. She added that 900 to 1,200 people throughout the metals industry – from mills to service centers – attend each year.
The BSA offers a hands-on Metalworking curriculum that serves as a sound introduction to the metals industry – and allows members the opportunity to earn a Metalworking badge.
