Momentum - March 2020 - 3

Collegiate Chapters are designed to get SAE student
members to get together on their campus and develop
skills in a student-run and elected environment. Student
members are vital to the continued success and future
of SAE, and Collegiate Chapters on campus are a great
way to develop valuable skills. All chapter officers have
access to the toolkit (
SitePages/About.aspx), which will help them run a
successful chapter. We want you to run a successful
chapter year after year, regardless of what officers
graduate. Therefore, we wanted to create a succession
plan that would help you remain constant. Look for it in
the toolkit, because it is coming soon!

This program allows you to invite an industry expert to speak to your
Collegiate Chapter, for free. SAE has a collection of speakers available
to speak on a wide array of topics, and we are always bringing on more
speakers (so stay tuned into Member Connection for announcements).
One of our speakers, Dr. Mohamed Zaher, talks about several different
topics, such as cybersecurity, and why it is important to get different
engineers in sync for product development lifecycles. Or, invite Larry Rinek
to discuss preventable defects in aircraft design and materials. Learn more
and see all of our speakers at
Please note this benefit is available to current SAE Collegiate Chapters.
If you have a Collegiate Design Series Team (Formula, Baja, Aero Design,
etc.), this does not guarantee that you have a chapter. Not sure if you
have a chapter? Don't have one formed yet? Reach out to Abby Hartman,
