SME Member Council

Share this

The SME Member Council was created in the fall of 2003 to lead the member engagement activities of SME's volunteer networks. It is responsible for assisting SME in recognizing and meeting the needs of its membership in a rapidly changing environment, building on the long-term SME strategic goals, strengthening local activities and formulating recommendations relative to SME membership recruitment, retention and engagement. 

Mission
The SME Member Council leads the member engagement activities of SME, both as they are found in chapters and local communities, and as they are realized in international Technical Communities. The council is responsible for assisting SME in recognizing and meeting the needs of its membership in a rapidly changing environment, building on the long-term SME strategic goals, strengthening member participation in SME activities and formulating recommendations relative to SME membership recruitment, retention and engagement.
Vision
We will create an environment in which each member can benefit from and contribute to our dynamic community of manufacturing professionals.
