January 2010 Chairman’s Note

Dear Members and Section Friends,

I invite you to “slow things down” after a busy Holiday season by attending the January HB Performance (HB) section meeting. I would like to thank Kurt Person of HB, a recent transfer member of the Detroit section, for his enthusiasm in hosting this meeting. It’s this support from local companies which helps make our section meetings a success!

This year’s joint November meeting with ASME was also a huge success! The hybrid vehicle presentation drew 120 attendees who provided new conversation and networking possibilities. SAE will attempt to hold an annual joint meeting with ASME to continue the relationship.

Don’t miss February’s meeting at Friction Stir Link to see the latest technology in military ship manufacturing. These techniques were used on the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) Freedom commissioned in Milwaukee, earlier in 2009.

Note the March 15th-20th dates for the Clean Snowmobile challenge. There will also be a Milwaukee Section meeting during the event. We hope to see you there.

The May Family Night meeting will be geared toward a race theme, held at Hiller Ford, Inc. We ask any members who are racing enthusiasts to share their projects and experiences with the Section by presenting them at this meeting. Please contact Dale Wiza, if you would like to bring a vehicle to the meeting.

I wish you all the best in the new year!

Regards,

Jim Ryan
Chairman – Milwaukee Section
