March 2012 Chairman’s Note

 

Dear Members and Section Friends,

The March 22nd meeting at Case IH was a huge success! Over 120 attendees joined us for a fantastic tour and technical presentation. They demonstrated a great example of their World Class Manufacturing (WCM) production system. Case IH is experiencing tremendous growth. Anyone interested in employment opportunities should visit their website at: http://www.cnh.com/Careers/Pages/home.aspx. Many thanks to Case IH for sponsoring the meeting and providing great support for our Section.

Michigan Tech University hosted an outstanding Clean Snowmobile Challenge event this year. As in past years, the Milwaukee Section contributed a $1,000 sponsorship to the competition. Recognition goes to Jay Meldrum for leading the event coordination.
