May 2013 Chairman’s Note

 

Dear Members and Section Friends,

Many thanks to Holz Chevrolet for hosting a fantastic April section meeting on the Chevy Volt! GM Powertrain instructor Bill Weaton captivated the audience as he described the electric drive system. The Volt meeting was part 2 of our electric vehicle series, following April’s Section meeting on vehicle battery technology at Johnson Controls. Join us at the finale, part 3, on Sonex’s electric aircraft.

 

Don’t forget to buy your discounted tickets for the June Sprint races at Road America. Logon to the event registration online at milwaukeesae.org to purchase your tickets.

The 2012-2013 SAE calendar year ends on May 31st. The Section board member officer elections will be finalized at this month’s governing board meeting. After serving for three years as Chairman, I will relinquish my position and continue to serve our organization as past chair. I’ve sincerely enjoyed the experience, and look forward to continue building relationships with our section.

 

And finally, enjoy your summer! I look forward to seeing you at our September kickoff event on the new C7 Corvette.

Best regards,

 

Jim Ryan

Chairman – Milwaukee Section
