September 2012 Chairman’s Note

 

 

Dear Members and Section Friends,


We missed you during our summer break, but we’re excited to launch another prosperous year of SAE activity! Our expectations have grown after achieving record attendance levels at last year’s section meetings. The meeting attendance over the previous 5 years averaged 55 people per meeting. Last year’s excitement raised our average to 94 people per meeting! We aim to continually exceed your expectations and grow our membership.

 

 

Dear Members and Section Friends,


We missed you during our summer break, but we’re excited to launch another prosperous year of SAE activity! Our expectations have grown after achieving record attendance levels at last year’s section meetings. The meeting attendance over the previous 5 years averaged 55 people per meeting. Last year’s excitement raised our average to 94 people per meeting! We aim to continually exceed your expectations and grow our membership.


I’m proud to announce several new additions to our Section governing board. Garrett Herning (Power Test Dynamometers) has accepted the position as Vice Chairman. Drew Boyer (Modine Mfg.) will pioneer a new initiative as Social Media Manager. Matt Anderson (Briggs & Stratton) is a new addition to the board as Newsletter Editor. And finally, our new student representatives are also engaged: Bryan Adams (Marquette University), Charlie Scanlon (MSOE), and Ethan Gaynor (UW-Milwaukee).


Many thanks to board members Wayne Richter and Dale Wiza for planning our September kickoff meeting on the Ford GT. We’re planning an exciting program lineup this year, including an electric vehicle series including Johnson Controls (battery technology), Tesla model S or Chevy Volt electric car, and Sonics electric aircraft.
