Hello SAE Milwaukee Section Members and Friends,
Fall is in full swing and it won’t be too long until the busy Holiday season and the possibility of that familiar white stuff on the ground.
For November we will be having our annual Student Night, where we showcase the student vehicles and let them compete for the sponsorship money we have allocated for them. Last year we had 5 schools and over 70 students in attendance. This year we expect an equally large turnout by the students. If you have never been to a student night, it’s not just for students, and I encourage you to join us. Up-and-coming engineers are what keep our SAE Section, profession, industry, and country strong. Please come out and support these young engineers and see what they have been busy working on. This is a great opportunity to network with industry and college faculty who support our section.
As a section we have several initiatives we are working on this year.
The first is our STEM/AWIM initiative to help introduce middle school and high school students to engineering. If you would like to volunteer to help a local school or if your children’s school would like to get a program going, please contact any board member and we can help connect the dots.
Our second initiative is our shadow program. We are always looking to keep our section strong and plan the best events possible. Please consider becoming involved in our leadership team. We can accommodate your needs if you like to become a board member or just help plan a monthly event. With our shadow program we pair you up with a board member and you shadow them through the process. Please talk to any of the current board members about the spot we have for YOU!
I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event.
SAE Milwaukee Section – Chairman
