February 2015 Chairman’s Note

 

Greetings Milwaukee SAE Section members and friends,

 

The days are starting to get longer which mean spring is right around the corner. While many of us are dreaming of spring already, if you’d like to give winter a proper send off, consider taking the ride up to the Keweenaw Research Center and join SAE at the Clean Snowmobile Challenge on March 2-7. Taking a few days to see what the competition is all about, talking with students, and networking with industry is a great way to celebrate the last few weeks of winter.

 

Greetings Milwaukee SAE Section members and friends,

This month is our annual joint meeting with the Milwaukee Section of ASME at Case New Holland. This is another great event where to network with other professionals in our field. Please join us on March 11th.


The SAE Milwaukee Section is looking for your help! We have two great opportunities for you to help grow your leadership skills and help keep our section active and continuing to be the premier engineering society in the area.

 

The first is our Shadow Program. Are you interested in what being a board member entails? Volunteer to be a shadow and we will pair you up with a board member. You can see what this board member does and help them with some of their tasks. This is a great way to get involved and see what helping out with the Milwaukee SAE Section is all about. Please contact Randy Hoffman for more information.

 

The second opportunity is our AWIM/STEM initiative. Please consider volunteering to help bring engineering into the classroom for middle and high school students. Did someone spark your interest as a child that led you to a path in engineering? Maybe you can do the same for a young person. This is a great way to have an impact and promote the engineering discipline. Please contact Sid Jain for more information.

 

I look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events!
