Dear Members and Section Friends,

Please join us this month for the Rapid Product Development Exposition and Collegiate Student Grant Challenge. The exposition will present students and professionals with current technology and manufacturing methods used for rapid product development. The Milwaukee Section collegiate chapters will give short presentations to describe how rapid product development is/can be used to develop their vehicles for competition. Each participating chapter will receive a grant from the Section based on evaluations provided by the professional members in attendance. Don’t miss this excellent opportunity!

The Section would like to thank Harken Inc. for hosting an outstanding September event. Their facility tour and enthusiastic stories captured a large audience of over 50 attendees. It was great to see section show so much interest in the nautical sector of the mobility industry.

This year’s November meeting will be held as a joint meeting with ASME. This is a great opportunity to network with additional professionals in similar industries. You will also have the chance to explore GM’s hybrid vehicles and learn about their technology developments. Don’t wait to register, this event will fill up fast.

Program developments for the January and February meetings are in the works. Please contact a board member with any meeting suggestions you may have. We appreciate your feedback to make the Milwaukee Section more beneficial to everyone.

Best regards,

Jim Ryan

Chairman – Milwaukee Section
