April 2015 Chairman’s Note

 

Greetings Milwaukee SAE Section members and friends,

 

 

Spring is here and we are closing in on the end of the SAE year, but don’t worry we still have some top notch events on our schedule.

 

 

This month we will be at Uptown Ford to get an up close and personal look at Ford’s new F-150 with the aluminum body. There is a lot of buzz in the industry about this vehicle and this will be your chance to see what the buzz is about and what this means from a design perspective.

As you think of summer, keep in mind our annual Golf Outing and the June Sprints at Road America. These are great social activities where you can bring your friends and co-workers along to see what SAE is all about.

 

With the year coming to a close that means that we are in the stages of planning for next year. 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 task through the year. 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 soon at one of these upcoming events!
