Allan B Brown Regular Member Seminar

Registration process for a seat in the Allan Brown

     This is very popular and requires a substantial skill level to participate. Limited to 16 participants. Due to the amount of material to be covered, you are expected to be very familiar with both bench and lathe work. If you are relatively new to the field, consider applying for the Joseph S. Gregar Junior Seminar insteadIt’s junior only in that the skill level requirement to participate is less. The instructor are experts in the field, and there’s a bit more one-on-one teaching available. As a benefit of ASGS regular membership, seats are available to regular members only for the first 30 days of registration. Following the regular member registration time-window, other members are encouraged to apply for a seat and will be reviewed on a case by case basis. Skill set and space permitting, as many as possible will be added. If the seminar reaches capacity, observation seats will be offered.
