Committees, Team and Task Forces
Countless AEC volunteers provide their time and talent to the Aluminum Extruders Council, its committees, and the industry; they are the lifeblood and moral compass of AEC. Recently, AEC announced a new organizational structure that better aligns with AEC's strategic goals.

AEC offers a number of Benchmarking tools, in the form of periodic membership surveys.


  • Academic Outreach Presentation "Designing to the Limits" (PPT format) — This newly updated (July 2018) PowerPoint presentation can be used to take your industry message to schools in your area. Customize it with your own logo and colors, and add or hide slides as your message warrants. Please note this is a large file and may take a few minutes to download. When prompted, please select Save from the dialog box.
  • Academic Outreach School Reporting Form — After visiting a school and making a presentation (or hosting a class at your facility) complete the Reporting Form to keep AEC informed of the industry's progress in this critical initiative.
