January 2011 Chairman’s Note

Dear Section Members and Friends,

 

Welcome back from the holidays. I hope you enjoyed some well deserved free time with friends and family. We are ready to resume the SAE activity during the February 15th section meeting. The February meeting will offer a different venue from our classic technical focus in hopes of engaging additional members, while offering a career building experience.

 

Dear Section Members and Friends,

 

Welcome back from the holidays. I hope you enjoyed some well deserved free time with friends and family. We are ready to resume the SAE activity during the February 15th section meeting. The February meeting will offer a different venue from our classic technical focus in hopes of engaging additional members, while offering a career building experience.

 

I’m proud to report that the November Section meeting was a great success! $6000 in grant money was distributed to the collegiate chapters to apply towards their vehicle competitions. The attendance this year surpassed any previous year with over 70 attendees and 6 vendor exhibits related to rapid product development. The Section continues to search for new ways to support our student chapters. Please contact new board member Randy Hoffman, Vice Chair – Students Activities, to find out how you or your company can benefit a chapter.

 

Note the March 7th-12th 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!

 

The Section officer nomination committee will meet this month to vote on next year’s officer line up. Please send your nominations to j.w.ryan@na.modine.com for consideration. The selected offices will be announced in the February newsletter.

 

Best regards,

Jim Ryan

Chairman – Milwaukee Section
