Dear Members and Section Friends,

 

Our Section momentum continues to accelerate, as shown by increased monthly meeting attendance and a boost in volunteer leadership. Many thanks to board member Dale Wiza for coordinating our March meeting at Case IH. Join us for this memorable event and showcase of this world class business.

 

 

Thanks again for joining us at the January section meeting on Toyota hybrid systems. SAE represented over 60 of the 100 attendees in collaboration with ASME. As a thank you to ASME for inviting us to their event, we will reciprocate and invite their membership to join us in May at the Oshkosh Corp. meeting. Their engagement provides additional networking opportunities to you!

 

The Baja SAE competition will be hosted by the Milwaukee Section in May 2012, at the MGA proving grounds in Burlington, WI. This event set a new record in Collegiate Design Series competition registration by selling out all 100 positions in less than 18 minutes. Formula SAE still holds the record for selling out in less than 12 minutes however this is a new record for the Baja SAE series which usually sells out in a span of hours. Please contact Glenn Bower (grbower@facstaff.wisc.edu) if you’d like to become a volunteer for the Baja event.

 

It’s promising to hear positive news of record financials coming from America’s automakers. I hope this opens opportunities for you, your companies, and our Milwaukee Section. Please contact a board member if you’d like to host a meeting at your company.

 

Best regards,

 

Jim Ryan

Chairman – Milwaukee Section
