February 2010 Chairman’s Note

Dear Members and Section Friends,

Many thanks to HB Performance Systems for delivering a fantastic January Section meeting. The interest in HB was overwhelming as the meeting attendance grew to over 90 attendees. Ironically, nothing could stop the brake supplier from providing an outstanding tour of their manufacturing line, test lab, and showroom.

The Milwaukee Section website is up and running again thanks to collaboration from Cara Kazda and support from Ken Cook Company. Please visit the new website at www.milwaukeesae.com  to easily download monthly newsletters and register for section meetings. We welcome your feedback as we continue to improve the website’s format and content.

Note the March 15 th-20th dates for the Clean Snowmobile challenge held at Michigan Tech University in Houghton, MI. There will also be a Milwaukee Section meeting during the event. Don’t miss this opportunity to interact with the student teams, in addition to riding the snowmobile trails through scenic Copper Harbor. Find out more information on the CSC by visiting http://students.sae.org/competitions/snowmobile/. We hope to see you there!

In addition to the Family Night meeting in May, the section will be hosting an Open House board meeting. This is your opportunity to engage with the section in a roundtable discussion so that we can better serve our membership. We will also give recognition to the company representatives who help communicate the section’s activities within their respective companies.

Regards,

Jim Ryan
Chairman – Milwaukee Section
