the 1950s-themed event dressed in their best
'50s attire, and some danced to the music
coming from a jukebox! And Carl Grainger
and Roger Carlsen didn't disappoint with
their entertaining live auction.
On Friday, there was a lot to celebrate
as NOMMA honored and announced winners of the Top Job Awards and Service
Awards while also celebrating its 60th
Anniversary. A delicious three-course dinner
was served, champagne toasts were made,
and NOMMA's new board was announced
at the formal event.
On Saturday, shop tour attendees
were bussed to Grizzly Iron and Magnum
Companies where attendees got a behindthe-scenes look at the operations that take
place at the two shops. Attendees were
shown various forging practices at Grizzly
Iron and a multitude of large machines and
what they can do at Magnum Companies.
Next year's ME TALfab will held
March 12-16 in Indianapolis, Indiana. New
for next year, International Door Association
(IDA) will join NOMMA and AFA to provide an
even more dynamic and integrated industry
event. You will not want to miss it!

NOMMA Northeast Chapter Workshop Recap
ON DECEMBER 9, 2017, the NOMMA Northeast Chapter held a workshop at La Forge

de Style in South Hackensack, New Jersey, company owned by Dave Gore, long time
NOMMA member. Despite the inclement weather, 40 members participated; some
coming from as far as Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

During the first half of the day, Keith Majka of Majka
Railing, Jay Shah of Architectural Iron Designs, and
Richard Dantoni of Julius Blum & Co., went over NOMMA's
latest changes, in particular the new executive structure
and organization, NOMMA's NEF, the work being done on
NOMMA's website, and the AIA committee.
A new president was elected to replace Scott Hess
of Hess Ironworks, so that he can concentrate on his
fast-growing company. This position is now held by
Philippe Fiers of Armadillo Metalworks, Inc of Passaic,
New Jersey, and Eric Cuper of Cuper Studios remains
the chapter's secretary/treasurer.
Later, Philippe talked about a professional training
project for the chapter, which had been previously
discussed with all the chapter members earlier in the
year. The intent of that discussion was to assess the
needs and to remind everyone of the importance of
prompt feedback.
After enjoying a plentiful, hot buffet (thanks to La
Forge), a discussion about custom and standard bronze
handrail mouldings took place, followed by a live demonstration of a cap rail end hot forming by Robin Miellet
from La Forge.
