Greetings SAE Milwaukee Section and Friends!
I hope everyone is having an enjoyable summer and enjoying the beautiful days we have had the last few weeks. With fall just around the corner, we are getting ready to kick off a new SAE year of events. We have a dynamite schedule of events in the works for this year.
Wacker-Neuson is hosting our first event for this year and has a program planned that you do not want to miss. A worldwide manufacturer of lightweight and compact equipment with engineering and manufacturing in Menomonee Falls. Come hear about the company history, their facilities, and what innovation separates them from others in their industry.
On August 23rd we will be holding our second annual Cruise In, so get out your favorite ride and meet us at HB Performance where we will then “cruise” up to Sheboygan for the Kettle Moraine Corvette Club’s 30th annual Custom Car Show. There will be plenty of food, music, cars, trucks, bikes, and fun.
We are still actively looking for members interested in helping on the Governing Board. Our Shadow program lets you “shadow” a board member and contribute to the section. Help us continue to build and grow the Milwaukee SAE Section. We have plenty of opportunities to help you get involved and grow your leadership skills.
Lastly we are working to develop our AWIM program. AWIM stands for A World In Motion and is a way to help expose middle school and high school students to the engineering field. Somewhere along the way someone pointed you on the path to Engineering, do that same thing for another youth by contacting our AWIM chair to see the opportunities we have available.
