American Copper Council
Who are we?
The American Copper Council is a not-for-profit trade association representing all segments of the copper industry. Incorporated in 1975, the Council's 150 member companies include producers, scrap dealers, brass and wire mills, fabricators, consumers, merchants and brokers.
What do we do?
The major emphases of the ACC are education and networking. To that end, the organization sponsors two meetings annually designed to bring members of the industry together to discuss issues of common concern. Each meeting provides a forum for industry leaders to share their knowledge with decision-making executives from the copper industry.
Copper College is held biennially and is the Council's keystone event. The full educational program is made up of panels, workshops and presentations combined with several recreational and social opportunities. In attendance are more than 200 senior executives who serve as CEO's, CFO's, purchasing managers, and marketing executives representing all areas of the copper industry, including producers, wire and brass mills, merchants and brokers, scrap dealers and consumers.
