The Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) has named the two recipients of its President's Award, Terry Hoppe and Vince Anewenter.

Hoppe, formerly Stratasys' director of North American applications team, received the award posthumously. Sadly, Hoppe succumbed to pancreatic cancer in December 2020. Scott Crump, co-founder of Stratasys, accepted the award on Terry's behalf.

Hoppe was recognized for his years of service in the additive manufacturing (AM) industry and for transitioning AMUG from a supplier-specific users’ group to one that embraces additive manufacturing users of all technologies.

Anewenter, Milwaukee School of Engineering has served as AMUG treasurer for nine years, realizing ten-fold growth in conference attendance while maintaining the organization's financial health, the group said.

Past recipients of the President's Award are Thomas A. Sorovetz (2000), Patti Brown (2006), Guy E Bourdeau (2007), Robert Zubrickie (2010), Timothy Gornet (2013), Gary Rabinovitz (2014), Mark Abshire (2016) and Elizabeth Goode (2019).
