September 2010 Chairman’s Note

Dear Members and Section Friends,

The summer temperatures are cooling down but the SAE Milwaukee Section activity is ramping up. I look forward to another successful year of exciting programs as P&H Mining Equipment hosts our September kickoff event. The October Section meeting will be held at Briggs & Stratton, followed by the November student night meeting at UW-Milwaukee.

Dear Members and Section Friends,

The summer temperatures are cooling down but the SAE Milwaukee Section activity is ramping up. I look forward to another successful year of exciting programs as P&H Mining Equipment hosts our September kickoff event. The October Section meeting will be held at Briggs & Stratton, followed by the November student night meeting at UW-Milwaukee.

Iā€™m proud of several accomplishments the Section completed last year. The website(www.milwaukeesae.com) was launched and is well maintained by SAE board member Cara Kazda with help from Ken Cook Co. Please visit the website to access the latest newsletter, browse event pictures, or register for events. We also executed our commitment to provide a printed newsletter mailing for every event. This effort was made possible by the generous service donation from Ken Cook Co. Their service has improved our section communication resulting in higher meeting attendance. It also offset a large printing expense which will enable us to provide increased student grants for their collegiate design competitions.

The Company Rep. program was also revived last year led by great efforts from Tony Grant and Wayne Richter. The program helps raise employee awareness within their respective companies. Please contact Tony or Wayne to find out how you can become a company rep. We will continue the momentum into this year.

Please recognize Doug Kautzer of Briggs & Stratton for joining the governing board. Doug has organized the June Sprints event for several years and will now serve on the board as secretary.

I am confident that your governing board will continue the momentum into another productive year.

Best regards,

Jim Ryan
Chairman ā€“ Milwaukee Section
